REPORT 


OF    THE 


Deputy  Minister  of  Marine  and  Fisheries 


To  the  Honourable  J.  D.  Hazen, 

Minister  of  Marine  and  Fisheries. 

Sir, — I  have  the  honour  to  submit  herewith  my  report  for  the  fiscal  j^ear 
ending  March  31,  1916. 

It  has  been  vay  aim  in  the  preparation  of  this  report  to  include  such  informa- 
tion respecting  the  various  services'  entrusted  to  the  care  of  the  department  as 
may  prove  not  onlj'  useful  and  instructive,  but  generally  interesting.  As  the 
result  of  conditions  that  have  developed  during  the  twenty  months  that  the  war 
has  already  continued,  the  question  of  shipping  has  become  of  far-reaching 
importance.  Therefore  it  is  that  particular  pains  have  been  taken  to  assemble 
as   concisely  as   possible  available   statistics   in   reference   to  the   subject. 

On  March  31,  1916,  the  total  number  of  vessels  on  the  Canadian  register 
was  8,631,  measuring  1,215,021  gross  tons. 

In  former  yeai's  it  was  the  custom  to  value  the  shipping  on  the  Canadian 
register  at  .S30  per  net  ton.  This  figure  was  of  course  an  arbitrary  one,  but 
having  regard  to  averages  it  fairlj'  approximated  real  values.  At  the  present 
time  values  are  abnormal  and  actual  sales  are  common  at  prices  ranging  from 
$75  per  ton,  deadweight  capacity,  to  upwards  of  $100.  Freight  rates,  governed 
as  they  always  have  been  by  the  law  of  supply  and  demand,  have  enormously 
increased  during  the  past  year.  The  very  large  number  of  British  registered  vessels 
withdrawn  from  the  commercial  trades  since  the  commencement  of  the  war,  to 
engage  in  the  transport  of  troops  and  munitions,  accounts  almost  altogether 
for  the  abnormal  increase  in  freight  rates  and  the  value  of  ships. 

Throughout  the  year  there  has  been  much  discussion  in  the  press  and  by 
various  public  bodies  as  to  the  expediency  of  taking  such  ships  as  would  insure 
the  early  development  of  a  purely  Canadiaii  Mercantile  Marine,  not  only  for 
our  inland  and  coasting  trade,  but  for  foreign  trade  as  well.  In  the  development 
of  any  scheme  that  may  be  adopted  for  this  purpose  it  is  to  be  hoped  that,  in  so 
far  at  least  as  foreign  trade  is  concerned,  it  will  be  taken  for  granted  that  the  day 
of  the  small  carrier  has  gone  by. 

It  will  be  generally  admitted  that,  conditions  being  normal,  the  con- 
.struction  of  ships  for  the  foreign  trade  of  a  gross  tonnage  of  less  than  3,000  tons 
should  be  discouraged.  In  the  prosecution  of  that  trade  it  will  be  conceded  that 
the  most  economical  and,  therefore,  the  most  efficient  vessel  is  one  whose 
carrying  capacity  ranges  from  7,000  tons  to  10,000  tons.    From  Lloyds'  register

While  on  the  subject  of  aiding  the  shipbuilding  industry,  and  thus  helping 
to  establish  a  Canadian  Mercantile  Marine,  it  may  be  of  interest  to  note  what 
has  been  done  in  the  same  direction  by  other  countries. 

For  the  compilation  of  the  statement  which  follows,  outlining  the  methods 
adopted  by  various  countries  for  the  encouragement  of  shipbuilding,  the  depart- 
ment is  indebted  to  Mr.  Thomas  Robb,  of  Montreal,  manager  and  secretary  of 
the  Shipping  Federation  of  Canada: — 

REPORTS  ON  BOUNTIES  AND  SUBSIDIES  IN  RESPECT  OF  SHIP- 
BUILDING IN  VARIOUS  COUNTRIES. 


Argentine  Republic. 

No  direct  bounties  have  as  yet  been  granted,  but  the  coasting  trade  all 
towing,  lighterage  and  salvage  operations  are  reserved  to  Argentine  vessels. 
In  order  for  a  vessel  to  be  considered  an  Argentine  vessel,  she  must  fly  the 


heport  of  tee  deputy  minister  3 

SESSIONAL   PAPER  No.  21 

Argentine  flag  and  be  registered  in  the  republic;  (b)  to  have  an  Argentine 
proprietary  title  inscribed  in  the  proper  register;  (c)  to  be  commanded  by  a 
master  who  is  either  a  natural-born  or  naturalized  subject,  and  (d)  to  be  manned' 
by  a  crew  of  whom  at  least  one-third  (in  the  case  of  vessels  of  over  200  tons  bur- 
den) are  Argentine  citizens. 

AUSTKIA-HUNGARY. 

Shipbuilding  subsidies  are  granted  when  at  least  50  per  cent  of  home- 
produced  material  is  ordered — the  amounts  are: — 

(1)  In  the  case  of  steamships  of  iron  and  steel  (a)  for  the  hull,  40  kronen 
($8.10)  for  every  gross  ton;  (b)  for  new  ship-engines,  new  boilers,  new  pipes, 
or  tubes  and  supplementaiy  engines  of  every  kind,  8  kronen  ($1.62)  for  every 
100  kilos. 

(2)  In  case  of  sailing  ship  of  iron  and  steel,  for  the  hull,  when  more  than  half 
the  material  employed  is  of  home  production,  the  bounty  is  increased  by  1  per 
cent  of  its  amount  for  every  1  per  cent  of  such  material  in  excess  of  50  per  cent. 

(3)  In  the  case  of  sailing  ships  of  wood  or  mixed  construction,  for  the  hull, 
10  kronen  ($2.02)  for  every  ton  gross. 

The  construction  subsidy  is  allowed  also,  under  certain  conditions,  when  less 
than  50  per  cent  of  home  material  is  used,  but  in  this  case  the  bounty  is  diminished 
by  }/2  per  cent  of  its  amount  for  every  1  per  cent  under  50  per  cent. 

Belgium. 

Free  entry  of  shipbuilding  materials.  In  virtue  of  the  Budget  Law  of 
December  29,  1899,  materials  (not  otherwise  duty  free.)  to  be  used  for  the  con- 
struction, equipment,  fitting  out  or  furnishing  of  vessels  and  boats,  are  exempted 
from  duty,  on  importation  into  Belgium. 

Brazil. 

A  government  premium  of  50  milreis  ($16.22)  is  offered  per  ton  for  steam 
vessels  of  over  80  tons  built  in  Brazil,  but  has  never  been  earned. 

Denmark. 

As  regards  shipbuilding,  the  tariff  law  of  1908  provides  for  the  refund  of 
customs  duties  on  iinported  materials  used  for  the  construction  of  new  ships, 
subject  to  the  limitation  that  the  refund  must  not  exceed  in  amount  2  per  cent 
of  the  contract  sale  price. 

France. 

By  the  law  enacted  in  1906  the  construction  bounty  for  steamships  was 
fixed  at  a  maximum  of  172  francs  50  centimes  ($33.58),  to  cover  both  hull  and 
machinery,  and  to  diminish  gradually  for  ten  years.  The  amount  was  to  be 
divided  as  follows: — 

For  hulls   145  francs   ($28.22)  per  ton,  with  an  annual   decrease  of 

4|  francs  ($0.87)  per  ton  for  ten  years;    and  for  machinery,  27  francs  50 

21-U 


4  MARINE  AyO  FISHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

centimes  per  100  kilos  ($2.71)  per  cwt.,  with  an  annual  decrease  of  75 

centimes  per  100  kilps  (S0.08)  per  cwt.  for  ten  years. 
The  construction  bounty  for  sailing  ships  of  150  tons  and  over,  was  fixed  at 
40  francs  ($7.78)  per  ton,  and  of  less  than  150  tons  at  30  francs  per  ton  (S5.84). 

Only  seven-tenths  of  the  bounties  are  payable  in  respect  of  vessels  built 
in  foreign  ports,  the  remaining  three-tenths  are  payable  in  addition,  to  vessels 
sailing  under  the  French  flag,  two-tenths  one  year  after  registration  and  the 
remaining  one-tenth  at  the  end  of  the  second  year. 

So  long  as  the  law  of  1902  is  in  force,  these  bounties  may  not  be  paid  in 
respect  of  more  than  50,000  tons  of  steam  vessels,  and  15,000  tons  of  sailing 
vessels  per  annum. 

Further,  the  law  of  1906  provided  for  equipment  bounties  to  be  accorded  to 
steamships  on  the  French  register  (wherever  built),  at  the  rate  of  4  centimes 
(§0.01  per  ton,  up  to  3,000  tons,  and  3  centimes  ($0,006  per  ton,  from  3,000  to 
6,000  tons.  For  sailing  vessels  the  rates  are:  Up  to  500  tons,  3  centimes  ($0,006) 
per  ton;  500  to  1,000  tons,  2  centimes  ($0,004);  above  1,000  tons,  1  centime. 
These  equipment  bounties  are  subject  to  certain  conditions  as  to  average  daily 
distance  traversed,  to  quantitj-  of  cargo  carried,  the  average  speed  (the  minimum 
being  9  knots  per  hour).  This  equipment  bounty  is  payaljle  in  respect  of  vessels 
abroad,  if  not  less  than  two  years  old,  when  transferred  to  the  French  flag. 

Vessels  built  for  subsidized  mail  services  are  entitled  only  to  a  building 
bount}'^  of  65  francs  ($12.65)  per  ton  for  hulls  and  15  francs  per  100  kilos  ($1.46) 
per  ton  for  machinerj-. 

The  law  is  to  be  in  force  for  12  years. 

German  Empire. 

Construction  bounties: — These  bounties  do  not  take  the  form  of  a  pre- 
mium on  the  construction  of  ships,  but  consist  of: — 

(1)  Special  customs  facilities  for  goods  destined  for  use  ia  shipbuilding 
yards. 

(2)  Preferential  railwaj^  rates. 

(1)  Subsection  12  of  section  6  of  the  German  Customs  tariff  law  of  the  25th 
December,  1902,  exempts  from  payment  of  customs  duty  materials  used  for 
construction,  repairing  or  fitting  out  seagoing  or  river  vessels,  except  cabin  and 
kitchen  furniture.  Pleasure  boats  for  rivers  and  lakes  are  excluded  from  the 
enjoyment  of  these  privileges. 

In  accordance  with  the  regulations  issued  in  accordance  with  Bundesrath 
to  give  effect  to  the  foregoing  provision  of  the  law,  the  exemption  from  duty 
extends  to  raw  materials,  as  well  as  to  partly  manufactured  and  whollj*  manu- 
factured articles  which  are  used  for  the  construction  (original  construction  or 
alteration),  the  repair  or  the  eq_uipment  of  seagoing  vessels  (defined  as  vessels 
provided  with  a  fixed  seaworthy  deck  entirely  or  chiefly  destined  for  traffic  on 
the  sea,  or  its  bays,  harbours  and  shallows)  as  also  of  lake  and  river  vessels  to  be 
used  commerciall}'  for  passenger  traffic,  for  the  convej-ance  of  goods,  for  the  in- 


REPORT  OF  77/7?  DEPUTY  MINISTER  5 

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 

dustrial  pursuit  of  fishing,  tugging  and  dredging,  for  river -works,  docks  and 
dock  and  inspection  services,  and  other  public  services,  also  all  the  auxiliary 
boats  of  all  the  foregoing  lake  and  river  craft,  Init  not  floating  dredges  even  if  they 
be  provided  with  means  of  self-propulsion. 

Goods  for  fitting  out  cabins  and  kitchens,  including  even  articles  which  are 
to  be  permanently  fixed  to  the  body  of  the  vessel,  as  also  articles  intended  to  be 
used  in  the  manufacture  of  such  goods,  are  not  accorded  exemption  from  duty. 

The  articles  of  ships  equipment  and  the  materials  for  shipbuilding,  as  in 
respect  of  which  freedom  from  duty  may  be  claimed,  are  specified  in  lists  annexed 
to  the  regulations,  which  lists  may  be  supplemented  as  occasion  requires,  by 
decision  of  the  Bundesrath.  It  is  laid  down  that  all  articles  destined  for  the 
artillery  and  armament  of  ships  of  the  Imperial  navy  are  to  be  regarded  as 
articles  of  equipment  whilst  in  the  case  of  ships  of  war  building  in  Germany  for 
foreign  countries  the  chief  finance  officials  will  decide  in  every  case  as  to  the 
application  of  this  rule. 

The  regulations  further  deal  fully  with  the  system  of  bookkeeping  and  inspec- 
tion by  which  the  customs  officials  are  to  assume  that  all  the  materials  and  goods 
thus  admitted  duty  free  are  actually  used  for  the  purpose  indicated : 

(2)  Preferential  railway  rates  are  in  force  on  German  state  railways  for 
certain  raw  materials  and  partly  manufactured  articles  used  for  the  construction 
of  German  shipping.  The  railway  rates  of  October,  1905,  allowed  a  preference 
rate  of  1.7  pfennig  ($0,004),  plus  12  pfennig  ($0,028),  booking  free  per  ton 
per  kilometre,  in  lieu  of  the  ordinary  rate  4 . 5  pfennig  ($0.01)  to  3.5  pfennig 
($0,008),  plus  12  pfennig  ($0,028)  on  the  materials  in  question  "in  order  to 
assist  German  iron  industry  and  shipbuilding."  The  same  preferential  rate  also 
applies  to  the  following  list  of  articles  of  the  "special  tariff  for  iron  and  steel": 
rivets,  nails,  screws,  screw  and  rivet  plates,  nuts,  wire,  files,  ships'  chains, 
ships'  frames,  anchors,  and  all  other  articles  contained  in  tariff  III  used  in  ship- 
building. 

Italy. 

Provision  is  made  by  a  law  which  came  into  operation  in  July,  1911,  for 
bounties  in  the  form  of  navigation  premiums,  construction  and  repair  bounties, 
and  remissions  of  customs  duties,  during  a  period  of  15  years.     The  following 
are  the  main  provisions  of  the  law: — 
The  construction  bounties  are: — 

On  merchant  vessels  dredgers,  and  bridged  tugs,  with  iron  and  steel  hulls, 
55  lire  ($10.70),  50  lire  ($9.73),  and  45  lire  ($8.75)  per  gross  ton,  if  launched 
within  5,  10,  15  years,  respectively,  from  the  date  of  promulgation  of  the  law. 
On  wooden  vessels,  10  lire  ($1.94)  per  gross  ton. 

For  steam  motors  and  auxiliary  apparatus  forming  an  integral  part 
thereof,  15  lire  ($2.92)  per  indicated  horse-power. 
For  turbine  machinery,  17  lire  ($3.30)  per  shaft. 

For  boilers  and  auxiliary  apparatus  considered  as  accessories  thereof, 
12  lire  ($2.31),  220.5  lbs. 


6  MARINE  AND  FISHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

For  other  auxiliary  apparatus,  13.5  lire  ($2.61)  per  220.5  lbs. 
For  motor  apparatus,  27  lire  ($5.24)  per  horse-power  on  shaft. 
The  law  provides  that  the  bounties  at  the  above  rates  may  not  be  paid  in 
any  one  year  in  respect  of  more  than  40,000  gross  tons  in  the  case  of  steamships, 
and  1,600  gross  tons  in  the  case  of  sailing  vessels  of  iron  and  steel;  8,000  tons  in 
the  case  of  wooden  saihng  vessels,  40,000  indicated  horse-power,  in  the  case  of 
engines,  2,500  tons  of  boilers;  and  800  tons  of  auxiliary  apparatus.  The  repair 
bounties  are  fixed  at  a  maximum  of  $42,836.08  per  annum. 

Remission  of  Customs  duties: — The  law  further  provides  that  ship 
constructors  in  Italy  may  import  free  of  dutj--  one-quarter  of  the  metallic 
material  necessary  for  the  construction  of  the  hulls  of  merchant  ships,  dredgers 
and  bridged  tugs  built  at  the  order  of  Italians  and  intended  for  sea,  lake, 
lagoon  or  river  use  and  provided  that  this  quarter  does  not  exceed  120  kilo- 
grams per  ton  of  the  gross  tonnage.  A  quarter  of  the  metallic  materials 
necessary  for  the  transformation  of  vessels,  resulting  in  an  increase  of  the  gross 
tonnage,  may  also  be  imported  duty  free,  provided  that  such  quarter  does  not 
-exceed  120  kilogrammes  for  each  ton  added  to  the  vessel. 

The  law  also  allows  tempoi'ary  duty  free  admission  in  I'espect  of  (a)  foreign 
metallic  materials  employed  in  thejjonstruction  of  the  hulls,  machinery  boilers 
and  auxiliary  apparatus  of  merchant  vessels  ordered  by  foreigners,  or  in  the  con- 
struction of  iron  and  steel  craft  destined  for  exportation,  or  of  war  or  other  vessels 
ordered  by  foreign  governments  from  Italian  shipyards;  (b)  articles  of  equipment 
or  armament  for  the  above-mentioned  vessels;  (c)  their  machinery  and  boilers 
or  parts  thereof,  and  (d)  foreign  metallic  materials,  machinery  and  boilers,  com- 
plete, or  separate  parts  thereof,  to  be  employed  in  the  repair  or  transformation 
in  Italy,  of  war  or  other  vessels  belonging  to  foreign  governments. 

Italian  shipbuilders  may  claim  this  privilege  of  temporarj^  admission  in 
respect  of  materials  for  vessels  ordered  by  Italians  if  they  renounce  the  other 
customs  and  construction  bounties  accorded  bj^  the  law. 

The  quantities  in  respect  of  which  the  remission  of  customs  duties  may  be 
made  in  any  one  j'ear  ai'e  limited  by  the  law,  and  the  maximum  annual  total  of 
construction  bounties  (including  the  loss  of  customs  revenue  other  than  by

miums, repair  bounties,  and  a  small  sum  for  the  expenses  of  administering  the 
law,  make  a  total  authorized  expenditure  of  $1,206,916.80. 

Japan. 

The  bounty  payable  on  tonnage  constructed  locally  is  regulated  by  the 
provisions  of  the  law  for  the  encouragement  of  shipbuilding  which  came  into 
force  on  January  1,  1910. 

By  the  provisions  of  this  law,  onh^  those  ships  are  eligible  to  receive  a 
bounty  which  are  constructed  by  Japanese  subjects,  or  by  firms  which  have 
only  Japanese  subjects  as  members  or  shareholders. 

Vessels  receiving  bounties  must  be  built  of  steel  and  be  of  1,000  tons  or 
more,  gross  tonnage.  Thcj^  must  be  constructed  under  supervision  in  accordance 
with  the  shipbuilding  regulations  drawn  up  by  the  Minister  of  Communications.

If  the  engines  arc  built  with  the  vessel,  or  provided  the  sanction  of  the 
Minister  of  Communications  has  been  obtained  before  hand — at  any  other 
works  in  Japan,  a  further  bounty  of  yen  5.00  per  actual  horse-power  is  to  be 
granted. 

Except  in  accordance  with  regulations  laid  down  by  the  Minister  of  Communi- 
cations, foreign  manufactured  articles  may  not  be  used  for  the  hull,  engines, 
or  equipment  of  vessels  which  are  to  receive  shipbuilding  encouragement  bounties. 

In  constructing  the  hull  or  machinery  for  a  vessel  which  is  to  receive  the 
subsidy,  foreign  made  materials  may  not  be  used  except  for  the  following  parts : — 

(1)  Stem,  sternpost,  rudder  and  rudder  tiller,  rudder  post  quadrant,  rudder 
pintles  used  for  vessels  of  3,000  tons  or  more.

Norway. 

The  shipbuilding  bounties  which  are  granted  in  respect  of  tonnage  constructed 
in  Norway  on  Norwegian  or  foreign  account,  are  intended  to  cover  only  the 
amount  of  customs  duty  on  imported  materials  used  in  the  construction  of 
vessels,  and  are  fixed  by  customs  law  at  the  following  rates. 

(a)  For  steamships  with  main  engines  and  boilers  fitted  in  Norwegian 
workshops,  of  iron  or  steel,  2s.  3d.  (54c.)  per  gross  register  ton;  of  wood. 
Is.  8d.  per  gross  register  ton. 

(b)  For  steamships,  without  main  engines  and  boilers,  but  otherwise 
completely  fitted,  and  for  sailing  vessels,  of  iron  and  steel,  Is.  8d.  (40c.) 
per  gross  register  ton,  of  wood.  Is.  Ud.     (26c)  per  gross  register  ton.

Russia. 

The  estimates  of  the  department' of  mercantile  marine  included  for  1909 
and  subsequent  years  a  sum  of  $51,428.52  "Measures  for  the  encouragement  of 
shipbuilding."  Formerly  no  bounties  on  tonnage  whether  constructed  locallj'' 
or  purchased  abroad,  had  been  granted  to  Russian  shipping.  In  June,  1912, 
a  special  law  was  enacted  for  the  granting  of  bounties  for  the  construction  and 
repair  of  mercantile  vessels.  The  bounties  are  granted  to  shipbuilding  firms 
situated  within  the  Russian  Empire  (but  not  in  England  or  areas  in  which  there 
is  duty-free  importation  of  materials  and  machinery  for  the  construction  and 
equipment  of  vessels)  for  every  merchant  vessel  constructed  of  metal  and  intended 
for  use  in  foreign  waters  or  on  the  Danube  and  tributaries,  upon  registry  of  such 
a  vessel  at  a  Russian  port,  and  provided  that  it  was  laid  down  subsequent  to  the 
promulgation  of  the  law.     The  following  table  shows  the  rates  of  bounty.

Furjiher  bounties  at  the  rate  of  £3  14s.  Od.  per  indicated  horsepower 
are  to  be  granted  in  respect  of  the  installation  of  new  main  or  auxiliary  machinery 
in  the  vessels  for  which  construction  bounties  are  accorded. 

In  the  case  of  repairs  the  bounties  to  be  paid  are  for  new  boilers,  etc.,  3s.  2d. 
per  36  lbs.  of  metal  used;  for  new  main  or  auxiliary  machinery  lis.  7d.  per  30  lbs. 

After  10  years  have  lapsed  from  the  promulgation  of  the  law,  all  the  above- 
mentioned  bounties  are  to  be  reduced  by  6  per  cent  annually. 

Regulations  issued  under  this  law  provide  that  the  use  of  foreign  materials 
in  the  construction  of  the  hull  or  machinery  of  vessels  does  not  deprive  the  builders 
of  their  claim  to  the  bounties;  but  the  special  bounties  for  new  machinery  or 
auxiliary  engines  are  to  be  granted  only,  if  the  machinery  be  of  Russian  manu- 
facture, though  the  use  of  such  as  are  not  manufactured  in  Russia  (and  are  so 
specified  in  a  list  published  by  the  Ministry  of  Commerce)  is  permitted. 

It  is  understood  that  the  sum  of  £73,889  is  to  be  included  in  the  1913  budget 
for  the  bounties  under  the  provision  of  this  law. 

Spain. 

Spanish  shipbuilders  pay  the  full  customs  duties  on  material  imported,  but 
receive  the  following  bounties: — 

(1)  Per  ton  gross  of  all  wooden  ships  constructed  to  navigate  without 
motive  power  of  their  own,  80  pesetas  (£3.4.0.). 

(2)  Per  ton  gross   of   wooden    ships    constructed    to    navigate   with    their 
own  power,  100  pesetas  (£3.19.3f). 

(3)  Per  gross  ton  of  iron  or  steel  ships  without  motive  power  (dredges, 
.floating  cranes,  hoppers,  etc.)  120  pesetas  (£4- 16-0). 

(4)  Per  ton  gross  of  iron  or  steel  cargo  boats,  160  pesetas  ((£6.8.0.).     The 
same  bounty  is  paid  on  the  construction  of  iron  or  steel  fishing  boats. 

(5)  Per  ton  gross  of  iron  or  steel  vessels  constructed  to  carry  both   cargo 
and  passengers,  170  pesetas  (£7.16.0.). 

(6)  Per  gross  ton  of  iron  or  steel  vessels  constructed  for  passenger  traffic 

185  pesetas  (£7.8.0.).     An  additional  10  per  cent  is  paid  on  every  knot 

in  excess  of  14  attained,  in  trials  undergone  by  the  vessel  when  carrying 

half  her  maximum  cargo. 

The  above  scales  of  bounties  have  been  established  in  1909;    the  following 

year  was  the  first  in  which  payments  were  made  to  shipbuilders.     They  amounted 

on  that  year  to  a  total  of  738,432  pesetas  (£29,537)  =$143,746.73. 

Sweden. 

Materials  required  for  use  in  Swedish  shipbuilding  yards  for  the  construction 
or  repair  of  ships  of  over  40  tons  for  use  in  the  Swedish  Mercantile  Marine,  or  of 
ships  under  40  tons  for  immediate  sale  abroad,  may  be  admitted  free  of  customs 
duty. 

Uruguay . 

Under  a  law  of  1905,  which  was  to  be  in  force  for  25  years,  shipbuilding 
yards  and  workshops,  shipways  and  drydocks  may  import  free  of  customs 
duties,  all  materials  requisite  for  their  erection,  equipment  or  working.

By  section  19  of  the  United  States  Tariff  Act  of  1909,  all  materials  of  foreign 
origin  intended  for  the  construction  of  vessels  in  the  United  States  may  be  import- 
ed free  of  customs  duty.  But  vessels  which  have  so  benefited  in  construction, 
may  not  engage  in  the  General  Coastwise  trade  for  six  months  in  each  year, 
though  they  may  engage  in  the  trade  between  Atlantic  and  Pacific  ports  of  the 
United  States. 


SHIPPING  DESTROYED  SINCE  THE  OUTBREAK  OF  WAR. 

Statistics  dealing  with  the  matter  of  shipping  during  the  year  just  ended 
would  be  altogether  incomplete  without  a  reference  to  the  number  of  vessels

submarines. 

A  statement  prepared  by  Admiral  Sir  Cj'prian  Bridge  on  Merchant  shipping

REPORT  OF  THE  DEPUTY  MINISTER  11 

SESSIONAL  PAPER  No.  21 

From  the  foregoing  it  is  observed  that  the  loss  to  British  shipping  is  less 
than  4  per  cent  of  the  total  number  of  vessels  under  the  British  flag  and  slightly 
over  6  per  cent  of  their  total  tonnage.  The  construction  of  new  vessels  in  Great 
Britain  and  France  during  the  period  since  the  war  began  reveals  the  comfort- 
ing fact  that  war  losses  have  been  virtually  made  good. 

During  the  year  1915,  Great  Britain  added  88  steam  vessesl  of  a  tonnage  of 
344,000  tons  to  her  register.  In  the  same  period  Russia  and  Italy  show  an 
increase  while  France  was  short  only  12,500  tons.  While  the  losses  have  been 
great,  it  would  be  incorrect  to  ascribe  the  shortage  of  tonnage  to  the  action  of 
enemy  mines  and  submarines.  Rather  is  it  due  to  the  very  great  requirements 
of  the  Naval  and  Military  forces.  Less  than  one  month  ago,  it  was  estimated 
that  no  fewer  than  3,300  merchant  vessels  were  thus  engaged. 

LICENSING  OF  SHIPS. 

In  order  to  better  conserve  and  control  available  ships,  the  Board  of  Trade 
as  far  back  as  December  1,  1915,  took  the  necessary  steps  to  provide  by  Order 
in  Council,  that  no  British  registered  steamers  of  upwards  of  500  gross  tons 
should  engage  in  the  carrying  of  cargo  from  one  foreign  port  to'  another  foreign 
port  unless  the  owners  or  charterers  of  such  vessel  should  be  granted  a  license 
to  so  trade. 

The  Order  in  Council  alluded  to  authorized  and  directed  the  President  of 
the  Board  of  Trade  to  appoint  persons  to  carry  out  and  give  effect  to  the  provisions 
of  the  Order  and  to  grant  licenses  when  and  where  desirable.  The  said  Order  in 
Council  was  supplemented  on  the  15th  February  last  by  a  further  Order  in  Council 
prohibiting  as  from  the  first  day  of  March  last,  all  British  registered  steamers  in 
excess  of  500  gross  tons,  except  those  engaged  in  the  coasting  trade  of  Great 
Britain,  from  proceeding  on  any  voyage  without  first  obtaining  a  license. 

There  were  at  that  time  on  the  Canadian  register  upwards  of  300  steamers 
the  gross  tonnage  of  each  exceeding  500  tons.  These  or  any  number  of  them, 
were  free  to  engage  without  interference  in  any  trade  between  one  foreign  port 
and  another  foreign  port,  or  between  any  foreign  port  and  any  port  in  Canada  and 
vice  versa.  Having  regard  to  the  conditions  then  and  now  existing,  it  was  con- 
sidered undesirable  that  Canadian  registered  vessels  of  upwards  of  500  gross 
tons  should  be  permitted  to  engage  in  any  foreign  trade  without  the  knowledge 
or  consent  of  the  government.  It  was  therefore  provided  by  Order  in  Council 
of  the  11th  March,  1916,  that  as  from  the  first  day  of  April,  1916,  all  Canadian 
registered  steamers  whose  gross  tonnage  exceeds  500  tons  be  prohibited  from 
proceeding  on  any  voyage  excepting  voyages  from  a  port  in  Canada  to  another 
port  in  Canada  and  from  a  port  in  Canada  to  a  port  in  the  United  States  and 
vice  versa,  unless  a  license  to  do  so  has  been  granted  to,  or  in  favour  of  the  owners 
or  charterers  of  such  steamships. 

By  the  terms  of  the  Order  in  Council  referred  to,  the  Minister  of  Marine  and 
Fisheries  was  authorized  and  directed  to  appoint  a  committee  with  power  to 
issue  licenses.  The  Minister  in  accordance  with  this  authorization  and  direction, 
appointed  the  Deputy  Minister  of  Marine  and  Fisheries,  the  Deputy  Minister

of  the  Naval  Service,  the  Commissioner  of  Customs  and  the  Deputy  Minister 
of  Trade  and  Commerce  a  Committee  to  carry  out  the  purposes  of  the  Order  in 
Council. 

VESSELS  TRANSFERRED  FROM  CANADIAN  REGISTRY  DURING 

THE  YEAR. 

The  total  tonnage  transferred  from  the  Canadian  Register  during  the 
twelve  months  ending  March  31,  1916,  was  25,834.  The  number  of  vessels 
representing  the  aggregate  tonnage  was  42.  Fifteen  vessels  of  an  aggregate 
tonnage  of  4,780  gross  tons  were  transferred  to  foreign  registers — fourteen  to 
the  United  States  and  one  to  Russia.  Twenty-seven  vessels  representing  20,964 
gross  tons  were  transferred  to  British  registrj^  outside  of  Canada  as  follows : — 

United  Kingdom 4  8,069  gross  tons. 

Newfoundland 12  4,338          " 

Barbadoes 9  2,845          " 

New  Zealand 1  1,496 

Shanghai 1  4,216 

It  will  be  observed  that  the  transfers  of  Newfoundland  and  Barbadoes 
registers  constitute  the  principal  changes  during  the  year.  It  is  generally  under- 
stood that  a  large  proportion  of  these  transfers  was  made  with  the  sole  purpose 
in  view  of  securing  immunity  from  some  of  the  provisions  of  the  Canada  Shipping 
Act,  Chapter  113,  R.S.C.  Section  95  of  said  Act  provides  that  no  ship  registered 
in  Canada  over  one  hundred  tons  shall  go  to  sea  from  anj'  port  or  place  in  Canada 
on  any  voyage  not  being  a  coasting  voyage,  unless  the  master  and  first  mate  or 
Onlj'  mate  thereof,  possesses  valid  certificates.  And  section  96  requires  that  no 
sailing  ship  registered  in  Canada  over  one  hundred  tons,  and  no  steamship 
registered  in  Canada,  shall  go  from  any  port  or  place  in  Canada  on  am-  coasting 
voyage  or  be  licensed  or  allowed  to  ply  on  any  Canadian  water  unless  the  master 
thereof  possesses  a  valid  certificate.  Section  5  of  Chapter  65  of  the  Acts  of  1908 
amends  the  above  requirement  to  the  extent  that  sailing  vessels  under  one 
hundred  and  fifty  tons  do  not  require  to  carry  a  certificated  master. 

In  Newfoundland  and  Barbadoes  there  is  no  legislation  of  the  nature 
referred  to,  with  the  result  that  vessels  registered  there  may  engage  in  trade 
from  any  Canadian  port  without  being  obliged  to  secure  the  services  of  certi- 
ficated masters  and  mates.  It  does  not  appear  reasonable  that  vessels  on  the 
Canadian  register  and  their  owners  should  be  thus  discriminated  against,  and  it 
is  submitted  that  the  matter  should  engage  the  attention  of  Parliament  at  its 
next  session. 

It  may  be  pointed  out  in  further  reference  to  this  question  that  while  steam- 
ships registered  in  Canada  engaged  in  foreign,  coasting  or  inland  trade  are 
obliged  to  carry  certificated  masters  (vide  sections  95  and  96,  Chapter  113, 
R.S.C.)  steamships  registered  in  the  United  Kingdom  maj'  engage  in  all  these 
trades  without  any  obligation  to  employ  certificated  masters.  Both  the  Merchant 
Shipping  Act  and  the  Canada  Shipping  Act  appear  to  be  defective  in  this  respect. 
Section  92  of  the  Merchant  Shipping  Act,  1894,  provides  that  everj-  British

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 

foreign-going  ship  when  going  to  sea,  from  any  port  in  the  United  Kingdom,  shall 
be  provided  with  officers  duly  certificated.  When,  however,  that  ship  reaches  a 
Canadian  port  and  undertakes  to  clear  for  a  foreign,  coasting  or  inland  voj'age, 
it  is  under  no  obligation  to  employ  duly  certificated  officers.  In  the  revision  and 
consolidation  of  the  Canada  Shipping  Act  undertaken  by  this  Department  two 
years  ago,  the  result  of  which  is  embodied  in  the  Bill  entitled  "An  Act  to 
Consolidate  and  Amend  the  Canada  Shipping  Act,"  introduced  by  the  Minister 
of  Marine  and  Fisheries  during  the  session  of  1914-15,  provision  was  made  to 
overcome  this  difficulty  and  remove  what  is  in  reality  a  discrimination  against 
steamships  on  the  Canadian  register.  The  past  two  sessions  of  Parliament 
have  been  so  occupied  with  matters  and  measures  relating  to  the  war,  that  the 
Government  has  found  it  inexpedient  to  take  up  consideration  of  the  Bill.  Its 
importance  necessarily  involves  somewhat  lengthy  consideration  by  Parliament, 
but  it  is  hoped  that  during  the  next  session  opportunity  will  be  found  to  fully 
deal  with  it 

COASTING  VOYAGES. 

The  fact  that  the  legislation  of  Barbadoes  does  not  provide  that  ships 
registered  in  that  colony  must  carry  certificated  masters  and  mates,  has  given 
rise  to  a  considerable  demand  in  Canada  for  the  enlargement  of  the  area  for 
which  coasting  certificates  are  issued.  So  insistent  has  this  demand  become  that 
both  during  the  last  and  present  sessions  of  Parliament,  a  Bill  was  introduced 
by  Mr.  John  Sinclair,  M.P.  for  Guysboro,  Nova  Scotia,  making  provision 
for  the  extension  of  the  present  limits  of  a  coasting  voyage  from  five  degrees 
north  latitude  to  forty  degrees  south  latitude. 

During  the  parliamentary  session  of  1898,  a  Bill  was  passed  extending  the 
limits  of  a  coasting  voyage  from  Cape  Hatteras  to  the  present  limit — five 
degrees  north  latitude.  The  technical  officers  of  the  Department  at  that  time 
opposed  the  extension  chiefly  on  the  ground  that  the  standard  of  ciualifications 
required  for  "coasting  certificates"  was  not  sufficiently  high  to  insure  that 
applicants  for  certificates  would  have  the  knowledge  requisite  for  the  safe  navi- 
gation of  vessels  in  the  area  proposed  to  be  included.  Notwithstanding  this 
opposition,  the  measure  became  law. 

As  regards  the  measure  now  before  Parliament,  the  Departmental  view 
remains  the  same  and  the  same  objections  are  being  urged. 

Note. — The  Bill  referred  to  has  in  the  meantime  been  passed  by  both 
Houses  of  Parliament  and  is  now  law.      It  provides  as  follows: — 

"Section  three  of  chapter  sixty-five  of  the  Acts  of  1908  is  repealed  and  the 
following  is  substituted  therefor: — 

"Coasting  voyage"  means  a  voyage  between  any  port  or  place 
in  Canada,  and  any  other  port  or  place  in  Canada,  or  in  Newfoundland, 
Labrador,  or  St.  Pierre  or  Miquelon,  or  any  port  or  place  in  the  Unitecl 
States  of  America  or  Mexico  or  Central  America  or  in  the  West  Indies, 
or  on  the  eastern  coast  of  South  America  not  further  south  than  forty 
degrees  south  latitude;  or  on  the  coast  of  the  Territory  of  Alaska  or  of  the 
western  coast  of  South  America  not  further  than  forty  degrees  south  latitude.

MONTREAL  HARBOUR  COMMISSION. 

The  Harbour  Commissioners  of  Montreal  who  control  and  carry  out  harbour 
improvements  and  expenditure  and  revenue  are  the  same  as  last  year,  W.  G. 
Ross,  Esq.,  President,  Farquhar  Robertson,  Esq.,  and  Brig-Gen.  E.  Labelle, 
Secretary  Treasurer,  Major  David  Seath  and  Chief  Engineer,  F.  W.  Cowie, 
M.  Inst.  C.E. 


REPORT  OF  THE  DEPUTY  MINISTER  27 

SESSIONAL  PAPER  No.  21 

The  trade  conditions  in  Montreal  iiarbour  were  in  many  ways  similar  to 
the  experience  of  1914  owing  to  the  war  in  Europe.  The  steamers  known  as 
regular  liners  before  the  outbreak  of  the  war,  were  employed  as  transports,  and 
other  ships,  in  many  instances,  replaced  the  liners.  It  was  difficult  to  procure 
tramp  vessels  for  carrying  grain  and  other  agricultural  products. 

The  harbour  was  open  for  navigation  on  the  11th  of  April,  1915,  when  the 
Longeuil  arrived  at_her  pier  from  her  winter  quarters.  The  fir.st  trans- 
atlantic steamer  to  arrive  was  the  Cascaperfio;  Captain  Jones  her  commander 
received  a  token  of  the  event  in  accordance  with  the  custom  of  previous  years. 
The  last  vessel  bound  overseas  to  leave  was  the  Port  Dalhmisie.  Her 
departure  occurred  on  the  11th  of  December  and  later  than  any  sea-going 
vessel  was  known  to  depart. 

The  effect  of  requisitioning  sea-going  vessels  by  the  Admiralty  for  trans- 
portation purposes  was  more  marked  in  1915  than  in  1914.  During  the  season 
of  1914,  the  sea-going  vessels  that  arrived  in  the  port  of  Montreal  numbered 
916,  with  a  tonnage  of  2,755,518;  in  the  season  of  1915,  the  number  was  815, 
and  the  tonnage  2,261,374. 

Notwithstanding  the  willingness  of  shipowners  to  accommodate  shippers 
by  carrying  cargo  to  the  full  capacity  of  the  different  ships,  the  scarcity  of  tonnage 
very  materially  interfered  with  the  trade  of  the  port.  Large  quantities  of  grain 
and  other  products  of  the  kind,  usually  shipped  from  Montreal,  were  not  shipped 
to  overseas  countries  from  the  port,  because  a  sufficient  number  of  vessels 
was  not  available. 

The  quantity  of  grain  handled  in  the  elevators  was  37,064,002  bushels, 
about  25,000,000  less  than  in  1914.  The  facilities  for  receiving  commodities 
and  shipping  were  greater  owing  to  improvements" of  the  harbour  and  equipment. 

The  Head  Line  Company  began  a  new  service  between  Montreal  in  the 
year  1915,  by  establishing  a  line  in  the  transatlantic  carrying  trade  to  Avon- 
mouth,  G.B.  The  special  trade  mainly  consisted  in  carrying  provisions  and 
cheese  for  whiph  suitable  equipment  had  been  provided. 

Shipping  of  nitrate  of  soda  from  Chili,  by  way  of  Montreal  to  United 
States  western  ports,  was  also,  a  new  feature  in  the  trade  of  the  port.  One 
transhipment  only  was  necessary  in  a  circuit  of  10,500  miles. 

Considering  the  changed  conditions,  due  to  the  war  in  Europe,  the  entire 
business  of  the  port  was  far  from  discouraging.  The  arrival  of  sea-going  vessels 
in  the  St.  Lawrence  from  British  and  other  ports,  can,  in  a  large  measure, 
be  attributed  to  the  protection  of  the  British  navy. 

Of  the  total  net  tonnage  of  vessels  of  all  classes  arriving  in  the  port  of 
Montreal,  during  the  season  of  navigation,  the  tonnage  of  the  transatlantic 
vessels  was  1,657,728;  from  the  Maritime  Provinces  and  other  seaports,  603,546 
tons,  and  from  Inland  ports  4-,222,426,  total  6,483,700. 

Insurance  rates  have  for  many  years  been  a  matter  of  concern  to  ship- 
owners making  Montreal  the  transatlantic,  port  on  this  side  of  the  ocean.  The 
The  Minister  of  Marine  and  Fisheries,  for  the  time  being,  and  the  harbour 
commissioners  have  repeatedly  made  representations  to  underwriters  in  Great 
Britain  with  a  view  to  having  the  rates  on  hulls  and  cargoes  charged  vessels 


28  MARIXE  AXD  FISHERIES

using  the  St.  Lawrence  route  reduced  to  approximate  the  rates  prevailing  in 
voyages  to  more  southerly  ports. 

Tramp  steamers  are  more  especially  at  a  disadvantage  when  taking  the 
North  Atlantic  route.  For  some  reason  for  which  no  definite  explanation  has 
been  given  by  underwriters,  discriminating  rates  have  been  charged  upon  cai'goes 
and  hulls  to  Canadian  ports.  The  harbour  commissioners  have  pointed  this 
out  again  in  preparing  their  report  and  have  resolved  to  make  further  represent- 
ations to  the  underwriters  in  Great  Britain.  All  really  dangerous  factors  of 
former  years  have  been  gradually  removed  from  the  St.  Lawrence  route.  The 
sheltered  nature  of  the  route  and  the  unsurpassed  character  and  complete  sj'stem 
of  aids  to  navigation  have  been  frequently  and  explicitly  pointed  out,  but  with- 
out the  desired  effect.  The  large  expenditure  of  about  70,000,000  dollars  for 
improvements  along  the  route  of  the  gulf  and  river  St.  Lawrence  and  the  terminals 
has  made  this  waterwaj^  one  of  great  security  in  navigation.  The  harbour  of 
Montreal  is  equipped  with  all  essentail  facilities  for  handling  freight  and  has 
in  this  respect  no  equal  on  this  continent.  The  piers,  sheds,  grain  convej'ers 
for  simultaneous  loading  of  a  number  of  ships  from  the  grain  elevators,  and 
the  elevators  themselves,  are  unique  in  their  perfection. 

The  ship  channel  of  the  St.  Lawrence  river  for  220  miles  below  Montreal 
has  been  continuouslj^  undergoing  improvernent ;  lighthouses,  lighted  buoys, 
semaphores,  wireless  telegraph,  signal  stations,  pilotage  arrangements  have 
been  established  and  are  maintained  at  great  cost.  A  large  floating  dock  capable 
of  receiving  large  transatlantic  liners,  with  workshops  is  conveniently  located 
at  Montreal;  another,  160  miles  downstream  at  Quebec  is  under  construction 
and  at  this  point  also  is  a  capacious  wet  dock  for  repairs. 

Among  the  important  precautions  arising  from  the  changed  conditions  after 
outbreak  of  the  war,  was  the  organization  of  an  effective  harbour  police  force. 
The  force  rendered  good  service  in  1914  and  a  more  perfect  system  was  put 
in  operation  in  1915. 

The  railway  traffic  department  shows  in  its  statement,  a  large  increase 
in  the  number  of  cars  emploj'ed  in  conveying  freight,  compared  with  anj-  previous 
year  since  the  estabhshment  of  the  system.  In  1907,  the  number  of  cars  used 
was  70,850  and  in  1915,  157,480.  This  increase  in  the  handling  was  brought 
about  by  the  addition  of  new  cars  and  the  employment  of  the  hue  in  conveying 
soldiers  being  mobilized,  from  one  railway  company  line  to  another  and  to 
steamers.  The  compression  of  hay  in  three  of  the  sheds  during  the  winter 
months  contributed  to  the  traffic,  the  increase  in  the  conveyance  of  chilled  meat 
and  other  perishable  products  was  a  new  factor,  and  the  facilities  for  this  kind 
of  traffic  were  highlj^  spoken  of  by  shippers  and  steamship  owners  and  agents. 
No  delays  occurred  in  the  passenger  or  freight  conveyance. 

The  traffic  railroad  has  now  in  use  45  miles  of  track,  an  increase  over  last 
year  of  several  miles.  Local  trade,  it  is  expected  will  increase  the  traffic  between 
the  railway  terminals  and  the  delivery  of  freight  at  the  steamships. 

Still  further  extension  of  the  tracks  is  contemplated  keeping  in  view  accom- 
modation for  manufacturing  plants  now  on  the  harbour  front  and  others 
that  in  future  seem  more  than  probable. 


REPORT  OF  THE  DEPUTY  ^fIXISTER  29 

SESSIONAL  PAPER  No.  21  ^ 

Extensive  alterations  to  locomotives  and  cars  were  carried  out  in  the  shops 
of  the  railway  traffic  department  and  a  building  was  erected  for  the  office  of 
this  department  and  residence  of  the  yardmaster.  The  use  of  electricity  in  place 
of  steam  for  motive  power  has  been  the  subject  of  much  thought  and  the  conclu- 
sion has  been  formed  that  electricity  has  great  advantages  over  steam  in  many 
respects.  The  smoke  nuisance  would  be  abolished,  the  absence  of  acid  effects 
on  steel  and  galvanized  plant,  instant  application  of  power  in  the  working  of 
railway  and  perhaps  economy  are  among  the  advantages  claimed  for  electricity 
An  expert  has  been  employed  to  enter  into  all  details  of  the  subject  and  report. 

Construction  of  warehouses  at  convenient  points  on  the  harbour  property 
is  a  subject  that  has  also  received  attention  recently.  High  level  tracks  and 
roadways  now  enable  the  handling  of  freight  in  winter  as  well  as  summer  along 
the  harbour  front.  Goods,  therefore,  can  be  stored  for  future  delivery  to  all 
points  and  enable  importers  to  take  advantage  of  the  cheaper  rates  of  freight 
which  are  generally  charged  in  midsummer. 

The  main  object  of  building  such  a  warehouse  is  to  supply  a  want  frequently 
pointed  out  by  importers  who  have  complained  of  the  deficiency.  Plans  have 
been  prepared  for  building  an  eight  story  warehouse  in  a  central  place  on  the 
harbour  front  with  railway  spurs  and  other  connections. 

A  board  of  commissioners  composed  of  Mr.  Euguene  Haskell,  W.  J.  Stewart 
and  Fredk.  AVm.  Cowie  was  as  appointed  to  make  an  examination  and  report  upon 
the  effect  of  certain  dredging  in  the  harbour  on  depth  of  water  and  currents. 

The  engineering  department  under  control  of  Mr.  F.  W.  Cowie,  Chief 
Engineer,  has  carried  out  the  work  of  improving  the  harbour  and  usual  main- 
tenance and  upkeep  of  the  working  plant  and  work  previously  constructed. 

The  following  outhne  shows  the  progress  in  certain  improvements  during 
the  year. 

The  improvement  and  extension  of  the  harbour  railway  tracks. 

The  continuance  of  the  construction  of  the  new  Victoria  pier  and  Market 
basin. 

The  continuation  of  work  on  the  bulkhead  high  level  wharves  on  the  river 
front  eastward  of  Victoria  pier. 

General  dredging  of,  widening  and  deepening  of  basins  and  berths. 

Dredging  of  channels  for  relieving  St.  Mary  current. 

Paving  and  laying  railway  tracks  on  wharves. 

Completion  of  work  near  floating  dock  basin  and  site  for  Canadian  Vickers 
shipyard  and  repair  works. 

Progress  made  in  harbour  facilities  in  connection  with  hoists,  flood  gates, 
bridges,  subways  and  freight  yards. 

Additions  made  to  harbour  commissioners  construction  plant. 

The  rebuilding  in  concrete  of  the  quay  wall  opposite  shed  No.  13. 

The  construction  of  a  second  industrial  wharf  at  Pointe  aux  Trembles. 

The  construction  of  the  Longueuil-St.  Lambert  highway. 

The  commencement  of  the  construction  of  the  west  extension  to  grain  ele- 
vator No.  1. 

The  diversion  of  the  Elgin  basin  sewer  outlet  and  the  mooring  of  the  wharf 
office  building.

The  operating  of  the  floating  derrick,  hoists  and  other  appliances. 

The  elevators  have  been  enlarged  from  year  to  year  since  1910  and  the  work 
on  the  west  extension  of  No.  1  it  is  expected  will  be  completed  by  the  opening 
of  navigation  in  1916.  The  capacity  for  storage  of  elevator  No.  1  will  be 
4,000,000  bushels;  of  No.  2,  2,622,000  and  of  the  Grand  Trunk  elevator, 
2,150,000  bushels;  total  capacity,  8,772,000  bushels. 

The  elevators  are  constructed  of  re-inforced  concrete  on  the  most  modern 
plan  and  with  modern  equipment.  In  order  to  prevent  congestion  as  far  as 
possible  in  unloading  vessels,  special  attention  has  been  given  to  building  marine 
towers.  Two  of  these  are  connected  with  the  west  extension  now  under  construc- 
tion, having  a  capacity  of  20,000  bushels  each  per  hour,  making  an  addition  to 
the  towers  and  legs  already  attached  to  the  elevators.  Twelve  elevator  legs 
of  15,000  bushels  capacity  each  per  hour  form  part  of  the  equipment  of  No. 
1  elevator,  each  leg  tributary  to  two  garners. 

The  traffic  railway  along  the  harbour  front  is  now  7  miles  in  length.  The 
total  miles  of  tracks,  including  spurs,  sidings  and  yard  track  is 44,  of  which  5.5 
miles  were  constructed  in  1915. 

The  accommodation  for  the  river  and  ferry  steamers  was  largely  increased 
bj'  dredging  and  construction  of  quay. 

Sevei'al  river  steamer  berths  were  added  to  the  number  in  use. 

The  site  of  the  dry  dock,  consisting  of  30  acres  in  area,  was  increased  by  an 
addition  of  6  acres  of  right  of  way  and  road  tracks.  Protection  work  on  the  outer 
slopes  was  carried  out  to  a  total  length  of  3,000  feet  of  rip-rap. 

During  1915  great  activit}'  prevailed  in  docking  and  repairing  vessels, 
showing  the  importance  of  the  dry  dock.  About  25  vessels  were  docked,  examined, 
cleaned  and  repaired,  from  opening  to  closing  of  navigation  in  1915.

2,387  feet.  Some  969,728  cubic  yards  of  dredging  filling  have  been  deposited 
between  the  old  and  the  new  north  walls  of  the  Louise  embankment,  bringing 
this  portion  up  to  the  general  level. 

At  Indian  cove  substructure  blocks  for  the  bulkhead  wall  have  been  com- 
pleted for  a  length  of  1,010  feet. 

A  set  of  ways  has  been  laid  down  on  the  beach  to  the  west  of  Long  wharf 
to  facilitate  painting  and  repairing  of  Commissioner's  dump  and  deck  scows, 
and  a  pipe  line  connected  with  the  mill  pump  for  fire  protection.  From  the 
Victoria  cove  quarry  63,000  cubic  yards  of  stone  were  taken  during  the  season 
for  bulkhead  walls. 

Electric  lights  have  been  installed  on  the  floating  grain  elevator,  and  an 
elevator  to  handle  salvage  grain  in  connection  with  the  drier  house. 

Twenty  "Western"  dump  cars  and  one  spreader  have  been  added  to  the 
commissioners'  plant. 

A  railway  line  has  been  built  along  the  west  dock  front  from  the  cross- 
wall  to  the  marine  tower  of  elevator  No.  2,  and  4  railway  lines  serving  the  Q.H.C. 
elevator  No.  2  have  been  connected  with  the  embankment  railway  system. 

The  total  expenditure  amounted  to  $263,514.76  and  the  receipts  on  Revenue

TORONTO  HARBOUR  COMMISSION. 

Toronto  harbour,  York  county,  Ontario,  is  situated  on  the  north  side  of 
lake  Ontario,  about  thirty  miles  from  its  western  end. 

The  harbour  is  formed  by  a  low  sandy  island  on  the  south  side.  The  ten 
foot  contour  from  the  centre  of  the  island  is  about  a  half  mile  distant  from  the 
beach.  A  twenty  foot  contour  is  about  i^  of  a  mile.  The  water  increases  in 
depth  from  forty  to  fifty  feet  about  one  and  a  half  miles  in  the  lake  opposite 
the  centre  of  the  island.  On  the  western  side  of  the  island  and  part  of  the  lake 
shore  is  Humber  bay;  on  the  eastern  side  of  the  island  and  on  the  lake  shore  is 
Scarboro  beach. 

There  are  two  entrances  to  the  harbour,  the  one  called  the  Eastern  channel 
and  the  other  the  Western  channel.  The  Eastern  channel  is  between  two 
parallel  piers  constructed  of  concrete.  The  approach  to  this  channel  has  been 
dredged  to  sixteen  feet  in  depth  with  a  splayed  width  of  about  1,000  feet.  The 
distance  between  the  piers  is  375  feet  and  the  depth  16  feet  at  245  feet  above 
New  York  sea  level.  The  eastern  pier  of  this  channel  has  a  boat  landing  near 
the  centre.

The  new  Western  channel,  also  between  concrete  piers,  is  400  feet  between 
the  piers  and  the  depth  of  water  is  about  17  feet.  The  piers  of  this  channel  are, 
one  on  the  south  side  2,535  feet  long  and  one  on  the  north  side  2,235  feet  long. 

There  is  also  the  old  Western  channel,  north  of  the  new  channel,  close  to 
the  city  front  and  mariners  are  warned  not  to  use  this  entrance  before  consulting 
the  harbour  master  of  this  port. 

The  shoi'e  of  the  harbour  is  curved  along  the  south  of  island  side  and  straight 
on  the  northern  or  city  front.  The  area  of  the  harbour  is  six  and  a  quarter 
square  miles  and  the  depths  vary  from  14  to  25  feet. 

A  channel  has  been  dredged  to  the  wharves  at  Hanlan's  point  for  ferry  boats, 
and  small  passenger  boats  ply  between  the  city  and  the  following :  Ward's  island. 
Centre  island,  Sick  Children's  hospital  and  Hanlan's  point.  A  channel  has  been 
dredged  1,750  feet  in  length  by  100  feet  in  width  with  a  depth  of  water  at  the 
present  time  of  9  feet,  and  approaching  the  wharves  at  Hanlan's  point  the  width 
is  250  feet  for  a  distance  of  500  feet.  This  channel  is  used  by  steamers  plj'ing 
between  the  city  wharves  and  Hanlan's  point. 

The  wharves  at  pi-esent  used  by  shipping  are  located  on  the  city  side  of  the 
harbour.  The  face  frontage  of  the  wharves  measures  about  one  mile  and  the 
wharves  are  separated  by  slips  of  various  widths.  At  the  inner  end  of  these 
wharves  are  25  railway  tracks  with  sidings  leading  to  the  various  coal  and  ware- 
house wharves.  The.  depth  of  water  at  the  wharves  varies  from  14  to  22  feet. 
There  is  berthing  room  at  some  of  the  wharves  for  vessels  from  300  to  400  feet 
in  length.  There  are  four  wharves  where  coal  for  Toronto  is  discharged  and 
stored  in  large  sheds,  but  the  principal  coal  for  Toronto  is  supplied  by  rail. 

The  storehouses  on  the  wharves  of  Toronto  at  the  present  time  are  the

in  the  several  services  under  the  supervision  of  this  office  during  the  twelve 
months  ended  March  31,  1916. 

There  have  been  no  changes  in  the  duties  pertaining  to  this  branch  during 
the  past  3^ear;   thej'  remain  as  enumerated  in  previous  reports.

I  am  pleased  with  the  way  in  which  the  staff  has  worked  throughout  the 
year. 

OFFICE    WORK. 

The  largest  part  of  the  work  done  by  the  general  staff  of  the  branch  consists 
in  the  construction,  repair,  and  improvement  of  light-buildings,  fog-alarms, 
beacons,  and  other  aids  to  navigation,  the  supply  of  new  or  improved  illuminating 
apparatus,  etc.,  the  payment  of  expenditures  for  these  services  being  made  out 
of  the  vote  of  -5750,000  for  construction  of  aids  to  navigation.  Full  details 
of  the  work  done  in  this  connection  during  the  past  j'ear  are  contained  in  a  sepa- 
rate report  in  tabular  form  attached  hereto,  which  gives  a  complete  statement 
of  all  expenditure  charged  to  the  vote  in  question.     (Inclosure  A.) 

In  addition  to  the  work  of  this  branch  done  under  the  above  vote,  the  staff 
has  been  called  upon  to  perform  work  of  varied  description  for  other  branches 
of  the  department,  and  which  may  be  summed  up  as  follows: — 

For  the  Meteorological  Service  Branch — Erection  of  storm  signal  masts  at 
the  following  places:  Scatari,  N.S.,  Port  Hope,  Ont.,  and  repairs  to  observatory 
at  St.  John,  N.B.  and  to  the  time-ball  frame  at  the  citadel,  Quebec.

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 

Fo7-  the  Naval  Department. — Repairs  to  boathouse  and  construction  of  new 
slipway  at  Blanche,  N.S. 

Except  in  a  few  instances  where  lighthouse  and  fog  alarm  stations  are 
located  at  verj-  remote  and  outlying  places,  the  titles  to  all  properties  owned  by 
this  department  have  been  completed.  • 

In  addition  to  this  work,  the  titles  to.  the  sites  of  all  public  wharves  under 
the  maintenance  and  control  of  this  department,  numbering  about  1,000,  are 
being  investigated  and  copies  of  all  deeds  and  other  documents  affecting  the 
same  are  being  procured  for  our  title  records,  so  that  eventually  it  is  hoped  to 
obtain  a  complete  record  of  all  these  public  lands. 

&$  During  the  past  year,  321  deeds  and  other  title  documents  have  been  added 
to  our  records,  and  in  the  prosecution  of  this  work,  120  plans  of  survey,  etc., 
have  been  made  in  this  office. 

In  the  case  of  all  new  properties  acquired,  expropriation  plans  and  descrip- 
tions have  been  prepared  and  recorded  in  the  county  registry  offices,  in  ad- 
dition to  the  usual  notarial  deeds,  as  an  extra  precaution. 

This  branch  has  also  undertaken  to  make  a  complete  record  of  the  limits  of 
all  public  harbours  established  in  Canada,  and  these  limits  are  plotted  on  plans 
which  are  constantly  being  added  to  and  will  eventually  comprise  a  set  covering 
the  shore-line  of  the  whole  of  the  Dominion.  This  work  is  now  under  way,  and 
considerable  progress  has  been  made  during  the  past  year. 

The  work  in  connection  with  applications  for  water  lots  has  continued 
heavy,  as  will  be  seen  by  reference  to  the  draughting-room  statistics. 

Progress  has  been  made  in  the  establishment  of  headlines  in  some  of  the 
principal  public  harbours,  based  on  joint  action  by  this  department  and  the 
Department  of  Public  Works.  It  is  hoped  that  such  establishments  will  tend 
to  the  improvement  both  in  appearance  and  convenience  of  the  water-fronts 
affected.  During  the  past  year  headlines  have  been  established  by  Order  in 
Council  in  the  following  harbours:  Victoria,  B.C.  (partial  amendment  to  esta- 
blished headline);  Ford,  Ont. ;  Toronto,  Ont.  (partial  amendment  to  estab- 
lished headline) ,    Halifax,  N.S. ;   Pictou,  N.S. 

The  following  table  indicates  the  work  done  in  the  draughting  office  during 
the  twelve  months  ended  March  31,  1916. —

St.  Lawrence  to  the  head  of  ocean  navigation,  one  for  the  inland  waters  of  Canada, 
and  the  third  for  the  Pacific  coast. 

PERSONAL    INSPECTION. 

As  in  previous  years  both  the  chief  engineer  and  the  assistant  chief  engineer 
made  frequent  trips  of  inspection,  especially  of  works  under  construction.     The 


42  MARISE  ASD  FIfiHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

assistant  chief  engineer  gave  particular  attention  on  his  visits  to  improving  the 
organization  and  running  of  the  worlishops  and  depots  at  the  several  agency 
headquarters,  particularly  Prescott,  Quebec,  St.  John,  and  Halifax. 

The  chief  engineer  accompanied  the  Deputy  Minister  to  British  Columbia 
on  a  trip  extending  from  23rd  April  to  28th  May,  1915.  They  made  a  general 
inspection  of  aids  to  navigation  on  the  Pacific  coast,  going  out  by  Grand  Trunk 
Pacific  railway  and  paying  special  attention  to  the  departmental  depots  of 
Prince  Rupert  and  Victoria.  Several  days  were  spent  in  Vancouver  learning 
conditions  affecting  the  important  harbours  and  harbour-development  schemes 
on  the  Fraser  river  and  Burrard  inlet.  The  return  trip  was  by  way  of  Arrow 
lakes  to  Nelson,  thence  to  Spokane  and  by  the  Chicago,  Milwaukee  and  St.  Paul 
railway  to  Sault  Ste.  Marie,  whence  the  steamer  Simcoe  conveyed  them  across 
Georgian  bay  to  Midland,  lights  and  channels  being  inspected  en  route. 

From  August  10  to  20  the  chief  engineer  accompanied  the  Minister  on  an 
inspection  of  aids  to  navigation  in  the  gulf  of  St.  iLawrence.  Unfortunately 
the  weather  was  unusually  rough,  making  it  impossible  to  land  at  several  stations. 

The  chief  engineer  is  impressed  with  the  necessity  of  a  more  freciuent  and 
more  thorough  inspection  bj'  departmental  officials  of  all  the  coasts  of  the  Domin- 
ion, to  deal  not  only  with  existing  aids  to  navigation,  but  also  with  applications  for 
new  aids,  and  to  investigate  conditions  affecting  the  handling  of  slnps  in  the 
several  harbours. 

LIGHTING    OF    HUDSON    BAY    ROUTE. 

In  pursuance  of  the  policy  inaugurated  last  year  of  estabhshing  aids  to 
navigation  to  assist  the  Department  of  Railways  and  Canals  in  communicating 
with  Port  Nelson,  the  C.G.S.  Minto  was  despatched  as  early  as  possible  after  the 
opening  of  navigation  in  1915  in  Hudson  bay  and  strait,  to  place  in  operation 
the  unwatched  gas  lights  erected  in  1914. 

The  beacons  in  the  strait  were  found  in  good  condition,  were  overhauled 
and  were  all  in  operation  bj-  23rd  August. 

A  wooden  tower  to  carry  an  Aga  gas  beacon  was  erected  on  Nelson  shoal 
on  the  west  coast  of  Hudson  bay  Ijy  the  Department  of  Railways  and  Canals  for 
this  department,  and  the  light  was  established  on  it  on  5th  August,  1915,  by 
a  departmental  foreman. 

The  unwatched  beacon  at  Tatnam,  near  Port  Nelson,  was  inspected  and 
recharged  by  15th  August. 

A  steel  skeleton  unlighted  day  beacon  was  supplied  by  the  department  for 
erection  at  Marsh  point,  near  Port  Nelson,  to  replace  a  wooden  beacon  originally 
erected  by  the  Hudson's  Bay  Company,  which  had  blown  down.  The  Hudson's 
Bay  Company  has  undertaken  to  erect  the  steel  lieacon,  the  department  providing 
the  materials,  but  the  work  has  not  yet  been  completed. 

The  total  expenditure  in  connection  with  the  maintenance,  supply,  and 
erection  of  aids  to  navigation  in  Hudson  bav  and  strait  during  the  last  fiscal  year 
was  .S9,00G.06. 

DEPARTMENTAL    DEPOTS. 

At  the  Victoria,  B.C.,  depot,  the  location  and  grade  at  Johnston  street  having 
been  settled,  the  department  was  able  to  prepare  plans  for  the  improvement 
of  the  property.  During  the  coming  fiscal  year,  all  necessary  sheds  and  equip- 
ment will  be  supplied,  and  the  depot  will  be  fully  used. 

The  St.  John  wharf  has  been  completed  anci  is  now  in  use  by  the  depart- 
ment. A  buoy  shed  has  been  erected,  a  derrick  installed,  and  the  erection  of 
additional  buildings  is  contemplated  during  the  coming  season. 


REPORT  OF  THE  CHIEF  ENGINEER 


43 


SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 

The  work  of  improvements  at  the  Dartmouth  depot,  referred  to  in  last 
year's  report,  has  been  practically  completed. 

The  Prescott  depot  has  been  operated  as  usual  during  the  past  fiscal  year, 
but  the  work  has  been  less  extensive  than  formerly  owing  to  the  curtaihng  of 
construction.  Good  success  has  been  reached  in  the  manufacture  of  reflectors, 
and  small  light-house  clocks,  and  the  vapour  burner  in  use  in  the  service  has  been 
standardized  and  materially  improved.  Goods  amounting  to  $129,807  have, 
been  transferred  out  of  the  stores.  The  general  up-keep  of  the  Prescott  depot 
is  estimated  at  approximately  .|60,000  per  year,  of  which  about  two-thirds  is 
covered  by  the  earnings  of  the  depot,  the  other  third  being  considered  a  fair 
charge  for  the  maintenance  of  a  buoy  and  supply  depot,  a  yard,  and  in  fact  a 
sub-agency  of  the  department.  During  the  past  fiscal  year  the  actual  cost  of 
operation  was  .?56,604,  and  the  actual  earnings  slightly  under  .§30,000,  making 
the  net  cost  of  up-keep  about  $27,000,  or  about  $7,000  more  than  estimatecl. 
This  is  due  to  the  comparatively  small  amount  of  work  done  owing  to  war 
conditions. 


REMOVAL    OF    OBSTRUCTIONS. 

During  the  past  twelve  months  the  following  work  has  been  done  under  the 
annual  appropriation  ^or  the  removal  of  wrecks  and  obstructions  to  navigation : —

MAINTENANCE    AND    REPAIRS    TO    WHARVES. 

Wharves  owned  by  the  Government  are  usually  built  by  the  Department 
of  Public  Works  of  Canada,  and  on  completion  come  under  this  department  for 
maintenance  (see  R.S.C.  cap.  112  and  amending  Acts).  We  have  had  formally 
transferred  to  our  control  388  public  wharves,  but  there  are  probably  twice 
that  number,  of  the  completion  of  which  we  have  not  been  officially  notified, 
and  where  wharfingers  have  not  yet  been  appointed. 

This  branch  attends  to  minor  repairs.     Large  repairs  are  undertaken    by 
the  Department  of  Public  Works.     During  the  past  year,  $8,241.21  has  been 
expended  in  repairs  to  wharves     The  following  is  a  list  by  provinces  of  the 
amount  expended:

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917    . 
ICE-BREAKING. 

1 .  A  three-year  contract  with  the  Canadian  Towing  and  Wrecking  Company, 
Limited,  of  Port  Arthur,  to  Iceep  the  harlwurs  at  the  head  of  lake  Superior  open 
for  navigation  until  the  17th  December  in  each  year,  and  to  open  them  in  the 
spring,  as  soon  as  the  canal  at  Sault  Ste.  Marie  is  open  for  navigation,  is  still 
in  force,  and  under  this  contract  the  harbours  of  Port  Arthur,  Fort  William,  and 
West  Fort  William  were  opened  in  the  spring  of  1915  in  good  time.  Last  autumn 
the  open  season  continued  very  late,  but  some  ice  was  broken  as  early  as  the 
1st  December.  It  was  not  found  necessary  to  extend  the  operations  of  the  ice- 
breaking  fleet  later  than  the  17th  December.  No  complaints  were  received 
in  the  department  with  regard  to  the  ice-breaking  operations  during  the  past 
season. 

2.  The  contract  with  S.  Shipman,  of  Sault  Ste.  Marie,  Out.,  to  keep  free  from 
ice  the  channel  between  Kensington  point,  on  the  north  shore  of  St.  Joseph 
channel,  and  a  convenient  landing  on  St.  Joseph  island  or  Campement  d'Ours 
island,  was  renewed  for  another  year,  the  work  beginning  in  the  autumn  of  1915 
and  continuing  until  the  ice  had  formed  to  sufficient  thickness  to  permit  teams 
of  horses  to  cross  in  safety.  The  work  also  included  the  breaking  of  a  channel 
in  the  spring  before  the  ice  became  dangerous,  and  keeping  the  channel  free 
until  general  navigation  was  resumed.     The  cost  for  the  year  is  S;500. 

3.  The  usual  contribution  of  $300  was  made  towards  keeping  open  the  St. 
Croix  river  in  the  vicinity  of  St.  Stephen.  The  annual  cost  of  this  work  is  in 
the  neighbourhood  of  .$1,000  and  the  department  of  late  years  has  contributed 
$300  a  year  towards  this,  the  remainder  being  made  up  locally. 

TELEGRAPH    OR   TELEPHONE    CONNECTIONS    WITH    LIGHTSTATIONS. 

The  list  of  lightstations  and  other  aids  to  navigation  connected  by  tele- 
phone or  telegraph  with  the  commercial  and  government  trunk  systems,  which 
was  printed  last  j'ear  in  very  incomplete  condition,  has  been  revised  and  com- 
pleted, and  is  now  reproduced,  as  enclosure  B,  appended  to  this  report. 

The  policy  of  the  department  has  been  to  restrict  telephonic  connections  to 
stations  of  prime  importance,  where  shipping  interests  would  be  benefited  by 
the  prompt  transmission  of  ships'  movements,  or  where  shipwreck  attended  by 
danger  to  life  was  to  be  apprehended,  and  where  early  notice  of  a  disaster  might 
bring  aid  more  prompth^ 

In  preparing  the  list  it  has  been  found  that  a  great  many  lightstations  not 
included  in  it  are  in  close  proximity  to  commercial  telephone  or  telegraph  stations, 
and  it  may  be  stated  in  general  terms  that  there  remain  few  portions  of  the  coast 
line  of  Canada  that  are  not  within  easy  access  to  telegraph  or  telephone  estab- 
lishments, either  of  commercial  companies  or  of  the  government  system,  the 
latter  being  chiefly  restricted  to  districts  that  would  not  be  commercially  profit- 
able.

REPORT  OF  THE  COMMISSfOXER  OF  LIGHTS  63 

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 


APPPENDIX   No.   2. 

REPORT   OF   THE   COMMISSIONER   OF   LIGHTS. 

To  the  Deputy  Minister  of  Marine  and  Fisheries, 
Ottawa. 

Sir, — I  have  the  honour  to  submit  the  thirteenth  annual  report  of  this 
branch.  The  principal  work  performed  has  been  an  extension  of  the  buoy  and 
beacon  services,  together  with  the  maintenance  of  lights  and  other  aids  to 
navigation  throughout  the  Dominion,  and  the  maintenance  and  inspection  of 
public  wharves  under  the  control  of  the  Department  of  Marine  and  Fisheries. 
The  operations  of  this  branch  are  set  forth  in  tabular  form  in  the  following  two 
inclosures,  namely: — 

Inclosure  No.  1. — Statement,  by  districts,  showing  the  numl:)er  of  lights  of 
the  several  orders,  gas  beacons,  lightships,  lightboats,  lightkeepers,  fog  signals, 
gas  and  signal  buoys,  submarine  bells,  lighted  spar  buoys,  floats  and  dolphin^ 
unlighted  buoys,  stakes,  bushes,  dolphins,  spindles  and  beacons  during  the 
fiscal  year  ended  31st  March,  1916. 

Inclosure  No.  2. — Statement,  by  localities,  giving  the  number  qf  unlighted 
buoj's,  stakes,  bushes,  dolphins,  spindles  and  beacons  maintained  during  the 
fiscal  j'ear  ended  31st  March,  1916. 

In  former  reports  it  had  been  my  habit  to  add  further  inclosures  showing  the 
names  of  lightstations  and  lightkeepers;  a  complete  list  of  stations  at  which  gas 
buoys  were  maintained;  new  establishments  of  gas  and  signal  buoys;  with- 
drawals; and  statement  giving  complete  list  of  stations  at  which  submarine 
bells  were  maintained.  As  this  information  is  already  contained  in  other  govern- 
ment publications,  it  is  not  repeated  here. 

In  conclusion,  I  desire  to  express  and  record  my  appreciation  of  the  able 
assistance  rendered  by  my  staff,  and  the  untiring  application  to  duty  exhibited 
by  each  member.  It  would  not  have  been  possible  to  carry  out  the  large  and 
increasing  amount  of  work  which  devolves  upon  this  branch  without  the  co- 
operation of  all  the  officers  connected  with  it. 

I  have  the  honour  to  be,  sir. 

Your  obedient  servant, 

J.  G.  MACPHAIL, 

Commissioner. 

Office  of  the  Commissioner  of  Lights, 

Department  of  Marine  and  Fisheries, 

Ottawa,  31st  March,  1916.

River  St.  Lawrence  Ship  Channel. 

REPORT  OF  SUPERINTENDENT. 

Ottawa,  July  27,  1916. 

The  Deputy  Minister  of  Marine, 
Ottawa,  Ont. 

Sir, — I  have  the  honour  to  present  the  following  annual  report  on  the 
operations  for  the  improvements  of  the  river  St.  Lawrence  ship  channel  and 
Signal  service,  during  the  fiscal  year  ending  March  31,  1916,  also  on  the  ice- 
breaking  operations  during  the  winter  of  1915-16. 

I  have  the  honour  to  be,  sir, 

Yoia-s  obediently, 

V.  W.  FORNERET,  B.A.Sc, 

Superiniending  Engineer. 

History  of  the  River  St.  Lawrence  Ship  Channel. 
montreal  to  quebec. 

The  St.  Lawrence,  owing  to  its  situation,  is  the  natural  route  from  the 
Atlantic  to  the  northern  and  northwestern  half  of  the  North  American  continent. 
The  possil:)ility  of  converting  Montreal  into  a  deep-water  seaport  was  first 
suggested  in  the  year  1825,  when  the  Lachine  canal  was  completed  and  con- 
nected Montreal  with  the  Great  Lakes,  establishing  the  route  commercially. 

Ltight-draught  sailing  vessels  could  then  reach  Montreal  without  trouble 
excepr  during  a  few  weeks  in  the  autumn,  when  they  resorted  to  hghtering. 
Survej^s  were  made  with  the  object  of  increasing  the  depth  of  water  in  the 
wateway.  After  these  were  completed,  the  question,  of  which  channel  to  adopt 
through  lake  St.  Peter  was  hotly  discussed,  some  favouring  the  "natural"  or 
old  ship  channel,  and  others  the  "straight  channel"  through  the  St.  Francis 
bank.  Finally  it  was  decided  to  proceed  with  the  work  of  deepening  the 
"straight  channel,"  the  aim  being  to  obtain  a  channel  150  feet  in  width  and  to 
a  depth  of  14  feet  at  the  lowest  water,  instead  of  only  10  feet  6  inches  at  lowest 
water,  as  existed  in  the  old  ship  channel  which  governed  the  available  depth  for 
navigation  between  Quebec  and  Montreal. 

The  "Board  of  Works"  of  Canada  were  entrusted  with  the  task  and  began 
operations  in  the  spring  of  1844,  and  continued  till  the  month  of  June,  1846, 
when  the  work  was  suspended;  the  management  was  changed,  and  the  execution 
of  the  work  transferred  from  the  Board  of  Works  to  the  cont  ol  of  the  Com- 
missioners of  Public  Works.  The  dredging  was  again  resumed  in  the  month  of 
September  of  the  same  year.  Owing  to  continued  opposition,  the  work  of  cutting 
the  "straight  channel"  was  finally  suspended  on  the  16th  of  September,  1847, 
and  subsequently  abandoned.    After    sixty    years,    it    is    now    considered  that 


70  MARINE  AND  FISHERIES

the  "straight  channel"  as  commenced,  would  have  been  preferable.  Nothing 
more  was  done  on  lake  St.  Peter  by  the  Commissioners  of  Public  Works  for  three 
years.  The  Harbour  Commissioners  of  Montreal  then  came  forward  and 
offered  to  complete  the  project  expeditiously  and  economically.  The  proposal 
was  accepted  and  an  Act  was  passed  in  August,  1850,  transferring  the  work  of 
improving  the  ship  channel  from  the  Commissioners  of  Public  Works  to  the 
Harbour  Commissioners  of  Montreal,  who  were  empowered  to  charge  a  tonnage 
duty  sufficient  to  pay  8  per  cent  interest  upon  the  outlay  with  a  2  per  cent 
contribution  to  the  sinking  fund. 

16-foot  Channel. — The  Harbour  Commissioners,  after  examination  and  the 
best  advice  obtainable,  adopted  the  present  channel  with  five  tangents  instead 
of  two  long  straight. courses,  as  at  first  commenced  in  the  "straight  channel". 
Operations  were  begun  in  June,  1851,  to  dredge  this  channel  to  16  feet  at  low- 
water.  Most  of  the  dredging  required  to  attain  this  depth  was  in  lake  St.  Peter, 
but  some  small  shoals  had  to  be  removed  at  He  Delorier  and  Lavaltrie  channel, 
and  after  steady  work  it  was  all  completed  in  1854  to  a  depth  of  16J4  feet  at  low 
water,  and  wdth  a  mdth  of  from  250  to  300  feet. 

20-foot  Channel. — The  work  of  deepening  the  channel  to  attain  a  depth  of 
20  feet  at  low  water  v\dth  a  width  of  300  feet  vvas  continued  bj-  the  Harbour 
Commissioners  and  accomplished  in  November,  1865.  Dredging  was  necessarj'' 
at  Pointe-aux-Trembles  (en  haut)  channel  and  lake  St.  Peter  to  obtain  this 
depth.  Several  obstructions  had  also  to  be  removed  in. order  to  maintain  a 
more  direct  channel  between  Cap  St.  Michel  and  Lavaltrie,  and  in  Lavaltrie 
channel.  The  "south"  or  Vercheres  channel  had  been  selected  for  improvement 
instead  of  the  old  channel  or  "north  channel"  by  way  of  Repentigny  and  St. 
Sulpice. 

The  operations  of  1866-9  were  of  limited  extent,  and  consisted  chiefly  in 
cleaning  up  and  improving  the  20-foot  channel  which  was  obtained  in  1865. 

The  completion  of  the  20-foot  channel  marked  an  important  era  in  the 
history  of  the  St.  Lawrence  route.  The  success  of  the  work  amply  demonstrated 
that  the  St.  Lawrence  could  be  made  available  up  to  Montreal  for  navigation 
by  the  largest  class  of  ocean  merchant  ships,  and  the  extraordinary  increase  of 
Canadian  commerce  that  attended  the  improvement  of  the  channel  showed  how 
imperatively  it  was  demanded  by  the  trade  of  Canada.  No  sooner  was  the  new 
channel  fairly  in  use  than  the  rapid  increase  of  ocean  traffic  suggested  a  further 
deepening,  and  a  vigorous  agitation  was  commenced  for  a  24-foot  channel  at 
low  water. 

25-foot  Channel. — It  was  then  resolved  to  deepen  the  channel  to  25  feet, 
which  was  accomplished  in  the  fall  of  1882.  A  new  channel  on  the  south  side  of 
the  river,  opposite  Contrecoeur  and  parallel  to  the  Lavaltrie  channel  was 
adopted  for  this  channel,  as  it  was  wide  and  deep  and  recjuired  very  little  dredg- 
ing. It  was  called  the  Contrecoeur  channel.  This  gave  a  clear  depth  of  25  feet 
at  low  water  at  all  points  above  Cap  a  la  Roche,  but  at  that  point  and  Cap  Charles 
an  average  tide  was  necessary  to  pass  with  the  full  depth  available  elsewhere. 
In  the  straight  parts  of  the  channel  the  minimum  width  was  300  feet  and  at  the 
bends  325  to  450  feet. 

271-foot  Channel. — Owing  to  the  growth  of  trade,  it  was  seen  that  still 
further  improvement  of  the  channel  was  recjuired,  and  the  Harbour  Com- 
missioners of  Montreal  obtained  permission,  by  an  Order  in  Council  passed  the 
14th  of  June,  1883,  to  proceed  with  a  further  deepening  to  27J^  feet  at  low  water . 
The  work  was  vigorously  pushed  forward,  and  by  1888  the  channel  was  com- 
pleted to  this  depth  from  Montreal  to  Cap  a  la  Roche,  a  distance  of  1071^  miles, 
from  which  point  to  Quebec  the  tide  was  necessary  to  obtain  that  depth.  The 
channel  was  300  feet  wide  in  the  straight  portions,  and,450  feet  at  the  bends. 


RIVER  ST.  LAWRENCE  SHIP  CHANNEL  71 

SESSIONAL   PAPER  No.  21 

At  this  juncture  the  Federal  Government,  realizing  that  the  tonnage  charges 
upon  the  ship  channel  were  detrimental  to  the  mercantile  expansion  of  Montreal, 
passed  an  Act  in  1888,  making  the  ship  channel  a  national  and  not  a  local  work, 
and  reheved  the  Harbour  Commissioners  of  their  indebtedness  with  respect  to 
the  ship  channel,  and  transferred  the  work,  plant,  etc.,  to  the  Department  of 
Public  Works. 

The  tonnage  dues  were  abohshed  accordingly,  so  that,  since  the  work  came 
under  federal  control,  the  river  St.  Lawrence  ship  channel  has  been  free  to 
the  commerce  of  the  world. 

The  Harbour  Commissioners  carried  on  the  operations  for  the  Department 
of  Public  Works  till  the  end  of  the  season  of  1888,  when  the  official  connection 
of  the  commissioners  with  the  ship  channel  ceased,  after  having  continued  for 
over  thirty-eight  years. 

In  January,  1889,  the  control  and  management  of  the  work  was  assumed 
by  the  Department  of  Public  Works.  During  the  winter,  extensive  repairs  were 
made  to  the  dredging  plant,  which,  on  the  opemng  of  navigation,  was  set  to  work 
at  Cap  a  la  Roche,  Poullier  Raj^er,  and  Cap  Charles  in  deepening  the  channel  at 
t  hose  points  to  27}.'2  feet  at  lov/  water,  spring  tides. 

From  this  date  to  1898,  the  Department  of  Pubhc  Works  continued  opera- 
tions, and  completed  the  difficult  rock  work  at  Cap  a  la  Roche  and  Cap  Charles 
to  27J^2  feet  at  low  water.  In  addition,  many  portions  of  the  channel  were 
cleaned  up,  straightened,  and  several  curves  and  narrow  places  widened.  Surveys 
were  made  and  channels  were  dredged  through  several  shoals  between  cap 
Charles  and  Quebec  to  avoid  the  necessitj'  of  waiting  for  the  tide. 

30-foot  Channel. — The  unusually  low  water  of  1895  and  1897,  and  the 
increased  size  of  vessels,  urgently  called  for  a  wider  and  deeper  channel,  and 
larger  and  more  powerful  dredges  and  plant  were  required. 

In  1899  the  dredging  plant  was  in  a  condition  to  warrant  a  more  extensive 
plan  of  operations. 

The  low  water  of  1897,  the  lowest  on  record,  except  the  short  period  of 
unusually  low  water  of  1895,  was  adopted  as  the  new  datum  for  the  30-foot 
channel,  and  is  nearly  IJ^  to  2  feet  lower  than  the  ordinary  low  water  plane  of 
the  273-2-foot  channel.  The  object,  therefore,  was  to  realize  in  the  shortest 
possible  time,  a  channel  450  feet  wide  on  the  tangents  and  from  500  to  750  feet 
wide  at  the  curves.  An  anchorage  800  feet  wide  was  also  to  be  provided  at 
White  Buoy  curve  in  lake  St.  Peter.  The  work  also  included  much  straighten- 
ing of  the  channel. 

The  ship  channel  continued  under  the  control  of  the  Department  of  Public 
W^orks  until  1904,  when  an  Order  in  Council  was  passed  on  March  11,  transfer- 
ring the  management  and  control  of  the  river  St.  Lawrence  ship  channel, 
together  with  the  dredging  and  shipbuilding  plant  to  the  Department  of  Marine 
and  Fisheries,  so  as  to  place  the  supervision  of  the  improvements  to  navigation 
on  the  St.  Lawrence  route  under  the  department  directly  responsible  for  t-he 
pilotage  and  aids  to  navigation. 

Under  this  department,  the  work  was  vigorously  continued,  so  that  the 
season  of  1907  saw  the  completion  of  the  channel  from  Montreal  to  Batiscan  to 
30  feet  depth  at  the  extreme  low  water  of  1897,  a  distance  of  101  miles.  From 
that  point  to  Quebec,  the  tide  could  be  used  to  obtain  the  same  depth.  There 
still  remained,  however,  some  widening  in  lake  St.  Peter.  By  the  end  of  the 
season  of  1910,  the  dredging  M-as  all  completed  to  30  feet  to  the  head  of  Cap 
h  la  Roche  curve,  6  miles  below  Batiscan,  including  all  the  widening  between 
Montreal  and  that  point.  The  completion  of  this  work  allowed  more  dredges 
to  be  placed  in  the  Cap  a  la  Roche  district,  where  the  dredging  operations  are  the 
most  difficult,  the  current  being  strong  and  the  material  to  be  removed  mostly 
hard  shale  rock. 


72  MAEIXE  AXD  FISHERIES 

7   GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

The  dredging  operations  were  then  carried  on  with  renewed  energy  and, 
considering  the  difficulty  of  worlcing  in  this  locahty,  good  progress  has  been 
made,  so  ttiat,  at  the  close  of  the  season  of  1914,  only  about  half  a  mile  of  deep- 
ening in  the  Cap  a  la  Roche  district  was  required,  to  give  a  depth  of  30  feet  at 
extreme  low  water.  This  is  4}/2  feet  greater  depth  than  in  the  27J'2-foot  channel, 
as  the  low  water  plane  adopted  for  the  30-foot  project  here  is  2  feet  lower  than 
that  of  the  271^-foot  channel.     The  widening  is  nearly  completed. 

The  Cap  a  la  Roche  channel  was  widened  from  300  feet  to  450  and  550  feet, 
and  the  Cap  Charles  channel  from  300  feet  to  450  feet  with  600  feet  at  the 
curve,  and  completed  last  season. 

Grondines  channel  was  also  completed  last  season  to  a  depth  of  30  feet, 
wnth  a  width  of  450  feet. 

Both  the  Cap  Charles  and  Grondines  channels  were  openel  for  navigation 
during  the  season  of  1915. 

The  only  place  that  now  requires  dredging  to  obtain  39  feet  between  Cap 
a  la  Roche  and  Quebec,  is  at  St.  Augustin  bar,  14  miles  above  the  latter  place. 
Advantage  must  still  be  taken  of  the  tide,  by  deep-draught  vessels,  to  pass  this 
place.    The  range  of  tide  being  16 V^  at  springs  and  11  at  neaps. 

So-Joot  Channel. — In  1910  the  question  of  further  deepening  was  considered 
because  the  rapid  increase  in  the  size  of  vessels  was  likely  to  find  the  30-foot 
channel  too  shallow.  The  Government  therefore  resolved  to  proceed  immediately 
with  the  deepening  of  the  ship  channel  to  35  feet  at  extreme  low  water  of  1897, 
and  in  1910  work  started  in  lake  St.  Peter.  Owing  to  the  undulating  character 
of  the  river-bed,  dredging  is  not  required  throughout  the  whole  length  of  the 
channel  between  Montreal  and  Quebec,  as  at  some  points  the  natural  depth  is 
more  than  sufficient  to  secure  35  feet  at  extreme  low  water. 

Out  of  a  total  distance  of  160  miles,  82.24  miles  will  require  dredging. 
This  work  is  now  in  active  progress,  and  at  the  end  of  the  season  of  1915,  28.62 
miles  had  been  dredged  to  35  feet,  leaving  53 .  62  miles  unfinished. 


SHIP    CH.\NNEL    BELOW    QUEBEC. 

In  the  spring  of  1901  the  shipping  interests  of  ^Montreal  brought  to  the 
attention  of  the  Honourable  the  Minister  of  Public  Works,  the  fact  that  deep- 
draught  vessels  had  to  wait  for  the  tide  to  pass  St.  Thomas  and  Crane  Island 
shoals,  which  caused  these  vessels  to  lose  a  great  deal  of  valuable  time.  The 
officers  of  the  Marine  and  Fisheries  Department  at  Quebec,  who  had  an  intimate 
knowledge  of  this  part  of  the  river,  strongly  recommended  improving  the  north 
channel,  commencing  below  the  island  of  Orleans,  as  being  much  better,  more 
easily  navigated,  and  having  less  ice  in  winter  than  the  south  channel.  Orders 
were  given  to  the  Ship  Channel  staff  which  was  then  under  the  Department  of 
Public  Works  to  make  a  survey  and  examination  of  the  north  channel  with  a 
view  to  reporting  on  the  practicability  and  cost  of  improving  that  route  and 
adopting  it  for  navigation. 

In  1902,  a  similar  survey  was  made  of  the  south  channel,  to  ascertain  what 
improvements  would  be  required  to  make  a  30-foot  channel  on  the  line  of  the 
existing  route. 

A  comprehensive  report  was  made  on  Feliruary  24.  1903,  by  !Mr.  F.  W. 
Cowie,  C.E.,  who  was  then  superintending  engineer  to  the  acting  chief  engineer 
of  the  Public  Works  Department,  on  the  question  of  the  proposed  improvements 
below  Quebec. 

The  report  did  not  recommend  the  adoption  of  either  route,  but  advised 
that  the  choice  should  meet  with  the  approval  of  the  underwriters,  the  shipping 
interests,  and  the  pilots. 


RITER  ST.  LAWRENCE  SHIP  CHANNEL  ^  -73 

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.   21 

■  The  Transportation  Commission  visited  the  locality,  going  over  each  channel 
and  taking  evidence  on  the  subject.  It  was  finally  decided  to  improve  the  south 
channel  Ijy  dredging  it  to  30  feet  at  extreme  low  tide,  and  to  a  width  of  1,000  feet. 

The  parliamentary  appropriation,  to  enable  the  commencement  of  improving 
the  south  channel  below  Quebec,  became  available  only  late  in  the  autumn  of 
1905.  The  ship  channel  dredging  operations  had  been  transferred  to  the 
Department  of  Marine  and  Fisheries  in  1904.  Arrangements  were  made  to  have 
a  powerful  steel  twin-screw  hopper  hj'draulic  dredge,  constructed  at  the  govern- 
ment shipyard  at  Sorel.  It  was  estimated  that  it  would  take  a  year  and  a  half 
to  build  and  equip  this  powerful  machine,  which  was  carefully  designed  for  that 
special  work. 

In  March,  1906,  the  Department  of  Marine  and  Fisheries  received  very 
strong  representations  that  these  improvements  could  not  be  delayed,  and  that 
to  wait  till  1907  to  make  a  commencement  would  seriously  menace  the  proposed 
plans  for  a  largely  improved  steamship  service.  The  nature  of  the  work  below 
Quebec,  the  exposed  position,  want  of  shelter,  etc.,  made  the  ordinary  American 
type  of  dredge  out  of  the  question. 

The  self-propelling  sea-going  hopper  type,  as  almost  altogether  used  in 
Great  Britain  being  required,  inquiries  were  made  from  the  dredge  builders  in 
Great  Britain  and  ship  agents  for  a  dredge  immediately  available,  suitable  for 
this  work. 

The  builders  had  none  on  hand,  and  the  only  suitable  ones  offered  were  in 
Australia  and  South  Africa.  Messrs.  Ferguson  Bros.,  one  of  the  largest  firms 
building  dredging  and  harbour  plant,  wrote,  stating  that  there  was  not  a  hopper 
dredger  of  the  capacity  mentioned  to  be  bought  in  England.  Messrs.  Simons  & 
Co.,  also  large  and  successful  dredge  builders,  wrote  that  all  their  large  dredges 
were  fully  employed,  and  that  thej'  did  not  think  there  was  a  possibility  at  that 
time  of  procuring  a  second-hand  hopper  dredger,  either  hydraulic  or  bucket 
ladder  tj'pe. 

A  Dutch  pump  dredge,  at  New  Orleans,  was  offered  by  Messrs.  H.  E.  Moss 
&  Co.,  of  Liverpool,  England,  for  £34,000.  The  price  being  very  reasonable, 
on  authority  of  Council  the  Minister-  ordered  an  examination  with  a  view  to 
purchase.  The  only  olsjection  to  this  dredge  was  that  it  had  no  cutter  and 
therefore  was  not  suitable  for  dredging  anj'thing  but  sand  or  soft  silt.  After  ex- 
amination it  was  decided  to  purchase  it,  as  Messrs.  Moss  &  Co.  had  reduced 
their  offer  to  £30,000. 

The  dredge  was  purchased  on  April  20,  1906,  at  that  price,  or  .|146,000, 
with  interest  to  date  of  payment.  The  vessel  was  docked  and  made  ready  for 
the  long  voyage,  and  all  expenses  of  repairs,  wages,  provisions,  stores,  etc.,  until 
the  dredge  reached  Quebec,  amounted  to  .$10,942.14  and  •14,574.17  insurance. 

The  dredge  Galveston  arrived  at  Quebec  from  New  Orleans  under  her  own 
steam,  having  been  twenty-nine  days  on  the  voyage.  She  continued  up  to  Sorel 
to  be  thoroughly  overhauled  and  fitted  out,  additional  quarters  for  the  crew 
being  also  provided. 

South  Channel  (SO  feet  at  E.L.W.) — The  Government  having  decided  to 
first  improve  the  south  channel,  preparations  were  made  to  start  the  work. 
The  project  had  in  view  a  channel  30  feet  in  depth,  at  extreme  low  tide  at 
Beaujeu  bank  and  St.  Thomas'  flats,  with  a  width  of  1,000  feet. 

The  changes  and  improvements  on  the  dredge  Galveston  being  completed, 
she  left  Sorel  for  Beaujeu  bank,  off  Crane  island,  on  August  11,  1906,  and  began 
operations  on  August  13.  The  material  consisted  of  coarse  sand  and  gravel, 
with  some  layers  of  soft  blue  clay.  The  new  hopper  hydraulic  dredge  Beaujeu 
was  launched  at  the  government  shipyard  at  Sorel  on  December  2,  1906,  and 
completed  on  November  1,  1907.    She  was  then  taken  down  to  commence  opera- 


74  .     MARINE  AND  FISHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,   A.  1917 

tions  on  the  channel  through  St.  Thomas  flats,  the  material  to  be  dredged 
being  soft  clay,  sand,  and  some  stones. 

With  these  two  powerful  dredges,  good  progress  was  made  with  the  work. 
The  Beaujeu  Bank  channel  was  completed  in  1909  to  30  feet  at  extreme  low  tide, 
and  the  widening  finished  in  1910.    The  channel  was  then  opened  to  navigation. 

The  St.  Thomas  channel  was  completed  to  a  depth  of  30  feet  at  extreme 
low  tide  and  to  a  width  of  1,000  feet  during  the  season  of  1912.  The  channel 
was  then  marked  out  with  gas  buoys  and  opened  to  navigation.  This  was 
considered  a  great  improvement  as  deep-draught  vessels  were  not  obliged  to 
anchor  to  wait  for  the  tide  to  pass  Beaujeu  bank  or  St.  Thomas  flats,  thereby 
saving  much  valuable  time. 

North  Channel  (35  feet  at  E.L.T.) — The  south  channel  being  now  completed' 
the  powerful  hydraulic  dredge  No.  8  (Beaujeu)  was  enabled  to  be  placed  at  work 
on  the  north  channel  where  dredge  No.  9  (Galveston)  had  already  been  operating 
for  a  season,  as  the  Government  had  decided  to  dredge  the  north  channel  between 
St.  Jean,  islanti  of  Orleans,  and  Goose  cape,  to  a  depth  of  35  feet  at  extreme  low 
tide,  and  to  a  width  of  1,000  feet. 

The  two  powerful  sea-going  hydraulic  dredges  No.  S  and  No.  9  have  since 
then  been  at  work  in  that  channel,  the  material  to  be  dredged  being  sand  and 
gravel. 

Although  these  two  dredges  have  made  good  progress,  there  still  remains 
6,928,805  cubic  yards  to  be  removed. 

t  a  Owing  to  requests  made  by  the  shipping  interests  to  complete  the  channel 
as~soon  as  possible,  the  Government  gave  a  contract  in  October,  1914,  to  the 
Canadian  Vickers,  Ltd.,  of  Montreal,  to  build  one  of  the  largest  sea-going 
elevator  dredges  in  the  world.  It  is  expected  to  have  this  dredge  completed  by 
September,  1916.  With  this  addition  to  the  dredging  fleet  below  Quebec,  the 
completion    of    the    north    channel    will    be    greatly    expedited.

SS.  Cascapedia. — September  15.  The  Quebec  Steamship  Company's 
steamer  Cascapedia  was  stranded  on  south  bank  at  head  of  lake  St.  Peter  during 
dense  fog;  came  off  without  any  damage. 

SS.  Indore. — September  22.  The  steamer  Jyidore,  outward  bound,  when 
coming  to  anchor  at  the  anchorage  ground  below  Pointe  Citrouille,  grounded 
slightly  on  the  south  bank,  but  came  off  without  assistance  or  damage. 

SS.  Lady  of  Gaspe. — October  13.  The  steamer  Lady  of  Gnspe,  owned  by 
the  Gasp6  Steamship  Company  stranded  at  about  one-third  or  half  a  mile  east 
of  the  Quebec  bridge,  on  the  north  shore  of  the  river  St.  Lawrence,  during  fog. 
Bottom  was  damaged.  Stranding  was  due  to  lack  of  prudence  and  to  bad 
navigation  on  part  of  master. 

SS.  Harmatris. — November  6.  The  steamer  Harmatris,  loaded  with  supplies 
for  the  British  Government,  outward  bound,  went  ashore  at  the  upper  end  of 
Cap  a  la  Roche  channel,  on  the  south  side.  The  steamer  came  off  at  high  tide 
with  the  assistance  of  a  tug,  slightly  damaged.  Accident  caused  by  steering  gear 
not  working  properly. 

(S(S.  Saint  Cecilia. — November  13.  The  steamer  Saint  Cecilia,  loaded  with 
supplies  for  the  British  Government,  outward  bound,  went  ashore  in  Montreal 
harbour,  opposite  Vickers  floating  dock,  on  south  side  of  channel.  After  unload- 
ing part  of  cargo  the  steamer  was  pulled  off  undamaged  next  day.  The  accident 
was  due  to  the  steering  gear  not  working  properly. 

Most  of  the  accidents  mentioned  above  are  of  a  minor  nature,  and  none  can 
be  attributed  to  any  fault  of  the  ship  channel. 

QUEBEC    TO    FATHER    POINfT. 

SS.  Christine  and  H.I. — May  18.  The  examination  steamer  Christine 
collided  with  the  H.L,  bound  for  Montreal,  resulting  in  the  sinking  of  the  former 
vessel,  and  the  loss  of  six  members  of  her  crew  and  one  signalman  on  board,  at 
7.55  p.m.  at  a  place  about  half-a-mile  west  of  the  St.  Jean  wharf,  island  of 
Orleans.  The  H.I.  was  only  slightly  damaged.  The  finding  of  the  wreck  Com- 
missioners' court  was  that  the  captain  of  the  Christine  was  chiefly  to  be  blamed 
for  the  accident. 

SS.  Strathcona. — May  29.  The  steam  barge  Strathcona,  of  the  Canada 
Steamship  Lines,  stranded  at  White  island.  Got  off"  with  slight  damage,  and 
proceeded  to  unload  part  of  her  cargo  at  Riviere-du-Loup. 

SS.  Haddington. — June  4.  The  Canadian  Steamship  Lines'  steamer  Had- 
dington went  aground  on  the  Eastern  reef  of  Red  island.  Came  off  at  flood  tide, 
with  partial  damage  to  her  bottom.  Accident  was  due  to  the  sailing  master  in 
charge  not  exercising  proper  .seamanship  and  good  judgment. 

SS.  Henry  B.  H.all. — June  10.  The  steam  barge  Henry  B.  Hall  stranded 
one-and-a-half  miles  southeast  of  the  Stone  Pillars  hght.  Smoky  weather. 
Came  off  without  any  damage.  The  accident  was  due  to  carelessness  and 
neglect  on  the  part  of  the  pilot. 

Barge  A.D. — June  23.  The  barge  A.D.  became  water-logged  in  a  heavy 
sea  at  Crane  island  o-wing  to  steam  pumps  getting  out  of  order,  and  the  hand 
pumps  being  unable  to  keep  her  afloat.  The  heavy  gale  raging  at  the  time 
caused  her  to  founder. 

SS.  Romncy. — June  24.  The  steamer  Romney,  inward  bound,  went 
aground  on  Green  island  reef;  was  floated  the  same  day  at  high  water  and  pro- 


76

ceeded  up  to  Quebec.  Her  bottom  was  damaged.  The  accident  was  due  to 
lack  of  attention  to  dutv  on  part  of  pilot,  who  mistook  Green  Island  light  for 
Red  Island  light. 

Steamer  Tadoussac. — June  28.  The  Canadian  Steamship  Lines'  steamer 
Tadoussac  was  stranded  near  Ste.  Iren^e  wharf  during  fog.  Was  got  off  with 
small  damage. 

SS.  Bengore  Head  and  ss.  Batiscan. — August  1.  The  steamer  Batiscan, 
inward  bound,  and  steamer  Bengore  Head,  outward  bound,  collided  off  cape 
Salmon  during  fog.  The  Bengore  Head  had  to  be  beached  on  Hare  Island  reef. 
The  Batiscan  also  received  damage,  but  was  able  to  proceed  on  her  way  up. 
The  finding  of  the  Wreck  Commissioner's  court  was  that  the  ss.  Batiscan  was 
entirely  to  blame  for  the  accident. 

SS.  Romcra. — August  15.  The  steamer  Romera,  owned  by  the  Glasgow 
United  Shipping  Corapam'  touched  bottom  on  shoal  on  the  north  shore  between 
cape  Dogs  and  cape  Salmon  during  fog.  Small  damage.  The  finding  of  the 
Wreck  Commissioner's  court  was  that  the  pilot  was  to  blame  for  the  accident. 

SS.  Pretorian  and  s.s.  Kansan. — September  15.  The  steamship  Pretorian 
of  the  Allan  Line  collided  with  the  steamship  Kansan,  inward  bound,  of  the 
American  Hawaiian  Steamship  Compan\',  whilst  former  was  at  anchor  at  a 
place  about  a  mile  east  of  the  White  Island  lightship  during  thick  fog.  Both 
steamers  received  some  damage.  The  finding  of  the  Wreck  Commissioner's 
court  was  that  the  accident  was  due  to  lack  of  prudence  and  bad  navigation  on 
the  part  of  the  pilot. 

Barque  Sosteen. — September  2(5.  The  Danish  barque  Sosteen  was  stranded 
on  the  north  side  of  Barnabj^  island  about  one  mile  from  west  end,  the  anchor 
cable  having  parted  and  the  ship  drifted  ashore.    Received  considerable  damage. 

None  of  the  above  accidents  which  occurred  between  Quebec  and  Father 
Point  can  lie  attributed  to  the  ship  channel.

shipping  matters. 

6.  The  telegraph  system  of  the  Department  of  Public  Works  on  the  north 
shore  of  the  gulf  of  St.  Lawrence  report  the  movements  of  vessels  engaged  in  the 
coasting  trade  to  the  signal  service  at  Quebec. 

7.  The  collectors  of  Customs  at  all  the  seaports  in  the  river  and  gulf  of  St. 
Lawrence,  on  the  Atlantic  coast  and  in  the  bay  of  Fundy  report  the  arrival  and 
departure  of  vessels  engaged  in  the  overseas  trade. 

8.  Lloyd's  agents  at  Quebec  are  furnished  daily  with  full  information  of

9.  Lloyd's  agents  at  St.  John  are  furnished  daily  with  full  information  of 
the  movements  of  vessels  engaged  in  the  overseas  trade  to  and  from  ports  in  the 
Maritime  Provinces. 


Improvements  Carried  out  and  Contemplated. 


The  signal  service  at  Halifax,  St.  John,  North  Sydney,  and  Quebec,  in  the 
river  and  gulf  of  St.  Lawrence  and  on  the  Great  Lakes,  and  the  telephonic  and 
reporting  service  between  Quebec  and  Montreal  were  combined  on  the  1st  April, 
1914,  under  the  heading  of  Signal  Service,  with  headquarters  at  Quebec.  This 
consolidation  has  greatly  facilitated  the  work  and  has  led  to  many  improvements. 

An  arrangement  was  made  with  the  Department  of  Railways  and  Canals 
whereby  their  officials  at  the  Lachine,  Soulanges,  Cornwall,  Galops,  Welland, 
and  Sault  Ste.  Marie  canals,  report  several  times  daily  to  the  Signal  Service  at 
Montreal,  giving  movements  of  vessels  bound  to  Montreal  and  points  east  of 
that  port.  In  this  connection  a  private  telephone  line  has  been  established 
between  the  Signal  Service  office,  Montreal  and  the  canal  office  at  Lachine. 
This  service  has  proved  itself  to  be  very  useful,  especially  to  the  shipping  interests 
of  the  port  of  Montreal,  and  will  be  extended  from  time  to  time  as  conditions 
may  warrant. 

A  new  signal  station  was  estabHshed  at  Cap  St.  ]\Iichel  and  put  in  operation 
on  the  27th  July,  1915,  and  another  just  below  Bellmouth  curve,  on  the  south 
shore;  this  one,  however,  was  not  readj'  to  commence  operations  before  the  end 
of  the  season,  therefore  it  was  decided  to  continue  the  Verchcres  signal  station 
for  the  balance  of  the  season  and  then  close  it  up  for  good  and  open  the  new

Bellmouth  station  the  following  spring.  The  old  signal  station  building  at 
Batiscan  was  towed  up  on  a  scow  and  utilized  for  the  Bellmouth  station,  after 
certain  alterations  and  repairs  were  made.  W4 

The  signal    station  at  Vercheres  was  closed  on  the  15th  December,  1915. 

These  new  stations  will  improve  the  service  considerably,  giving  it  better 
facilities  for  showing  weather  conditions  on  the  river  and  for  reporting  the 
movements  of  vessels. 

The  signal  stations  at  Point  Tupper,  C.B.,  N.S.,  and  Scatari  island,  N.S., 
are  to  be  put  in  operation  on  the  1st  April,  .191G. 

It  has  also  been  decided  to  establish  a  reporting  station  in  the  Mainadieu 
lighthouse.  This  station,  with  the  one  at  point  Tupper  and  at  Scatari  island  will 
improve  the  service,  enabling  the  weather  conditions  and  movements  of  vessels 
to  be  reported  in  territory  not  previously  covered  by  the  signal  service. 

All  the  various  signal  stations  were  kept  in  good  repair  and  painting  done 
where  required. 

Quebec,  Que.,  May  1,  191G. 
Ice-breaking,  Winter  1915-16. 

Sir, — I  have  tha  honour  to  submit  the  following  report  on  the  work  of  the 
ice-breaking  steamers  Lady  Grey  and  Montcalm  during  the  winter  of  1915-16: — 

On  the  30th  of  November,  1915,  the  C.G.S.  Lady  Grey  was  sent  to  Three 
Rivers  to  be  on  hand  to  assist  any  vessels  through  the  ice,  should  it  be  found 
necessary.  The  Lady  Grey  remained  there  until  December  11,  when  she 
accompanied  the  ss.  Port  Dalhousie  to  Quebec,  this  being  the  last  steamer  out. 

The  Lady  Grey  then  commenced  her  usual  trips  to  Cap  Rouge  and  St. 
Nicholas,  to  observe  the  ice  conditions  at  these  points. 

The  ice-))reakcr  Montcalm  returned  from  her  trip  to  Gaspe,  Anticosti  island, 
and  north  shore  points  on  January  4,  1916,  and  immediately  was  overhauled 
for  her  ice-breaking  operations,  and  then  took  her  turn  with  the  Lady  Grey  to 
observe  ice  conditions  at  the  bridge  and  above,  when  it  was  found  advisable. 

The  weather  was  comparatively  mild  all  through  December,  January',  and 
the  beginning  of  February.  This  gave  very  Httle  work  for  the  ice-breakers 
during  this  period,  as  they  had  only  to  occasionally  widen  the  channel  at  Cap 
Rouge  and  slice  off  at  Beauport  batture. 

The  ice-bridge  formed  at  Port  St.  Francis  on  December  20,  and  a  few  days 
afterwards  it  had  formed  solid  from  that  point  to  Montreal. 

A  serious  ice-jam  occurred  at  Cap  Rouge  on  February  13,  the  ice  having 
stopped  between  the  Quebec  bridge  piers  at  10.45  a.m.,  and  had  also  stopped  in 
Quebec  harbour.  The  ice-breakers  were  kept  at  work  opposite  Indian  cove, 
in  order  to  keep  the  lower  part  of  the  harbour  clear  of  ice.  Next  day  at  6  a.m. 
they  began  to  work  upwards,  and  by  1  p.m.  had  cut  their  way  for  a  distance  of 
2  miles  in  broken  ice,  of  4  to  5  inches  thickness,  and  piled  up  to  a  depth  of  10 
to  12  feet. 

Owing  to  the  tide  conditions,  the  ice-breakers  had  to  stop  work,  and  at  the 
time  they  stopped  work  the  end  of  the  ice  above  could  not  be  seen.  During  the 
following  night  the  jam  gave  away,  and  most  of  it  passed  down,  and  by  8.30  a.m. 
the  remainder  moved  out.  This  jam  was  caused  by  the  very  severe  weather 
which  occurred  at  neap  tides  when  the  current  was  less  strong.  A  strong  north- 
east wind  also  helped  to  retard  the  ice. 

A  jam  occurred  at  Quebec  harbour  on  February  26,  and  another  on  the  27th, 
caused  by  a  large  piece  of  batture  ice  coming  from  Les  Ecureuils  bank,  jamming 
at  the  bridge.    Both  these  jams  were  easily  broken  up  by  the  ice-breakers. 


80  MARINE  AND  FISHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,   A.  1917 

On  December  21  the  Lady  Grey  made  a  trip  to  Grosse  Isle  with  passengers 
and  freight,  and  on  Januar.y  21  she  went  down  to  Red  island  to  rescue  the  crew 
of  the  ferry  boat  Pilot  which  was  aground. 

The  Lady  Grey  made  several  trips  during  the  winter  to  Portneuf  to  slice  off 
the  batture  ice,  and  give  a  ^^^der  channel,  to  allow  the  ice  to  move  down  freely. 
The  channel  was  kept  open  all  winter  up  to  Three  Rivers. 

It  had  been  decided  to  begin  breaking  the  ice  above  Three  Rivers  on  ^larch 
20,  but  owing  to  the  Montcalm  being  required  to  assist  the  ferry  boat  C.G.S. 
Champlain  between  Murray  bay  and  Riviere  Quelle,  on  the  23rd,  as  the  ice  was 
too  heavy  for  the  Champlain,  the  Lady  Grey  only  began  work  on  the  24th,  about 
a  mile  and  a  half  above  Three  Rivers. 

The  Montcalm  remained  at  Quebec  in  case  the  liatture  ice  at  Les  Ecureuils 
and  bay  St.  Croix  might  break  away  with  the  spring  tides  and  jam  at  Cap  Rouge. 

As  the  ice  was  found  verj-  thick  and  progress  slow,  with  the  Lady  Grey 
working  alone,  the  Montcalm  was  ordered  up  on  the  27th  to  help  the  Lady  Grey, 
and  \\\X\\  both  vessels  working  together,  more  rapid  progress  was  made. 

From  Three  Rivers  down  to  Quebec,  the  river  was  practically  clear  of  ice 
from  shore  to  shore,  the  only  points  where  there  was  any  shore-ice  were  at 
Les  Ecureuils  and  baj'  Ste.  Croix. 

Above  Three  Rivers,  from  the  point  where  the  Lady  Grey  commenced,  up 
to  the  foot  of  lake  St.  Peter,  the  ice  was  24  to  36  inches  thick,  and  very  slow 
progress  was  made,  and  it  was  only  by  April  1  that  this  part  was  clear  of  ice  up 
to  Nicolet  traverse. 

The  cutting  of  the  channel  and  widenhig  was  pushed  ahead  to  a  short  distance 
above  curve  No.  2.  It  was  then  decided  not  to  go  up  farther  on  account  of  a 
crack  in  the  ice  about  a  half  mile  above  Yamachiche  bend,  which  went  right  across 
the  lake,  and  it  was  expected  that  the  whole  of  the  ice  below  this  might  move 
bodily  at  any  time.  If  this  had  happened  there  was  great  danger  of  one  of  the 
ice-breakers  being  caught  above  this  point  for  some  days. 

The  ice  on  lake  St.  Peter  started  to  move  on  April  15  and,  assisted  by  the 
constant  work  of  the  ice-breakers,  the  whole  lake  was  practically  clear  of  ice 
by  the  19th. 

Both  ships  proceeded  next  day  and  broke  up  a  jam  abreast  of  Ste.  Anne  de 
Sorel,  and  then  worked  till  the  22nd  breaking  up  a  very  heavy  one  in  the  vicinity 
of  Sorel  point.  When  this  was  accomplished,  the  river  was  clear  of  ice  from 
^Montreal  to  the  gulf. 

Owing  to  a  very  heavy  formation  of  frazil  ice  at  the  foot  of  Soulanges  canal, 
the  Department  of  Railways  and  Canals  applied  to  the  Department  of  Marine 
for  the  services  of  the  C.G.S.  Lady  Grey  to  clear  the  channel  in  order  to  allow 
vessels  to  pass. 

The  Lady  Grey  left  Sorel  on  April  24,  1916,  for  :Montreal,  and  left  for  lake 
St.  Louis  early  next  morning.  The  commencement  of  the  ice  was  abreast  of 
the  church  on  He  Perrot;  the  ice-breaker  worked  all  that  day  and  the  next. 
On  the  26th  a  large  piece  of  batture  ice  broke  i\\\a\  and  grounded  below  Windmill 
point,  blocking  tlie  channel;  the  Lady  Grey  worked  two  da^'s  breaking  this  up. 
On  the  27th  the  Lady  Grey  had  to  return  to  Lachine  for  coal,  which  she  took  during 
the  night.  Next  morning  she  returned  to  her  work  opposite  Cascades  island, 
and  succeeded  in  clearing  the  channel  to  the  foot  of  Soulanges  canal  at  4.30  p.m. 
that  day,  thereby  allowing  free  passage  to  vessels.

The  Lady  Grey  then  proceeded  down  on  her  way  to  Montreal,  but  was 
detained  several  days  at  the  entrance  of  the  Lachine  canal  owing  to  repairs  in 
the  canal. 

I  have  the  honour  to  be,  sir, 

Your  obedient  servant, 

Alphonse  Lafleche,

Superintending  Engineer,  River  St.  Lawrence  Ship  Channel, 
Department  of  Marine, 
Ottawa,  Ont. 

Gener.\l  Information. 

The  New  Steamboat  channel  for  light-draught  vessels  and  tows,  through 
the  islands  opposite  Sorel  to  lake  St.  Peter  by  way  of  the  Grand  Chenal,  was 
completed  to  a  depth  of  15  feet  at  e.xtreme  low  water  of  1897,  and  to  a  minimum 
width  of  400  feet. 

As  soon  as  the  three  lighthouses  to  mark  the  different  coiu'ses  are  completed 
in  the  spring  of  191G,  the  channel  will  be  buoyed  out  and  opened  for  navigation. 

All  light-draught  vessels  and  tows  will  have  to  use  this  channel,  and  keep 
out  of  the  ship  channel.  This  will  relieve  the  ship  channel  of  these  vessels  and 
prevent  them  being  in  the  way  of  the  ocean  steamers  in  the  bends  between 
Sorel  and  lake  St.  Peter.  This  new  channel  is  practicallj'  a  continuation  of  the 
Repentigny  Steamboat  channel.  With  this  aildition,  there  will  be  a  distance 
of  over  50  miles,  between  lake  St.  Peter  and  Montreal,  where  tows  and  light- 
draught  vessels  can  keep  out  of  the  ship  channel. 

Considerable  progress  was  made  in  the  deepening  of  the  ship  channel  to 
35  feet  at  extreme  low  water  of  1897  between  Three  Rivers  and  Montreal; 
8  miles  in  length  was  dredged  during  the  season. 

The  dredging  of  the  35-foot  channel  through  lake  St.  Peter  is  nearly  com- 
pleted; there  remains  only  He  au  Raisin  traverse  and  about  half  a  mile  in 
Nicolet  traverse  to  be  done,  which  will  be  completed  next  season. 

The  Cap  Charles  Channel,  at  Cap  a  la  Roche,  was  completed  to  30  feet  at 
extreme  low  water  of  1897,  and  witlened  from  300  to  450  feet  in  the  straight  jjor- 
tion  and  G50  feet  at  the  curve.  A  new  range  of  liglits  was  constructed  to  mark 
the  new  centre  line,  and  permanent  beacons  erected  to  mark  the  l)ank  lines. 
The  channel  was  then  buoyed  to  give  the  increased  width,  and  opened  to 
navigation. 

The  Grondines  Channel  was  also  completed  to  30  feet  at  extreme  low  water 
and  widened  from  300  to  450  feet.  A  new  range  of  lights  was  constructed  to 
mark  the  new  centre  line.  This  channel  was  also  buoyed  to  give  the  increased 
width  and  opened  for  navigation. 

The  widening  of  Cap  a  la  Roche  curve  is  almost  completed,  but  there  re- 
mains considerable  deepening  and  cleaning  up  to  be  done  yet.  A  large  area  of 
rock  was  also  broken  bj^  the  rock  cutter  in  readiness  for  next  season's  work. 

(lood  progress  was  made  with  the  widening  of  the  ship  channel  through 
Montreal  harbour  at  St.  Mary  current  and  Longueuil  shoal;  the  curve  at  the 
latter  point  is  to  be  widened  from  700  to  800  feet. 

The  dredging  operations  in  the  north  channel  below  Quebec  have  been 
carried  on  vigorously,  two  large  sea-going  suction  dredges  being  kept  at  work 
during  the  whole  season.  They  removed  2,197,568  cubic  yards,  and  there  still 
remains  6,928,805  cubic  yards  to  be  dredged.  This  channel  is  to  be  1,000  feet 
in  width  and  35  feet  in  dej^th  at  extreme  low  tide.    Where  there  was  only  7  feet

at  low  tide,  there  is  now  a  depth  of  26  feet.  With  the  addition  of  the  new  dredge 
now  building  at  Canadian  Vickers,  Limited,  Montreal,  much  greater  progress 
will  be  made. 

The  length  of  the  30-foot  channel  actually  completed  at  the  close  of  the 
season  of  navigation  1915,  equals  66-30  statute  miles.  The  total  length  requiring 
dredging  is  70  •  00  miles,  leaving  3  •  70  miles  yet  to  be  done. 

The  total  length  of  the  35-foot  channel  completed  at  the  end  of  the  season 
of  navigation  1915  equals  29-37  statute  miles.  The  total  length  requiring  dredg- 
ing being  90-38  miles;  there  remains  to  be  dredged,  61-01  miles. 

A  commencement  was  made  on  the  construction  of  the  compensation  dams, 
as  recommended  by  the  commission  appointed -to  investigate  and  report  upon 
the  water  levels  of  the  river  St.  Lawrence  at  and  below  Montreal. 

In  order  to  lessen  the  cost,  it  was  decided  to  utilize,  as  much  as  possible, 
the  dredging  material  taken  from  the  ship  channel  and  deposit  it  on  the  sites 
of  the  proposed  dams. 

Dredged  material  was  dumped  on  the  following  sites:  Repentigny  (between 
He  a  Bague  and  He  Bellegarde);  Chenal  Corbeaux  (between  He  de  Grace  and 
Stone  island) ;  Chenal  des  Barques  (between  He  aux  Barques  and  He  du  Moine) ; 
Pointe  du  Lac,  at  foot  of  lake  St.  Peter. 

During  the  season  the  usual  sweeping  of  the  ship  channel  was  done,  and 
no  obstruction  of  a  serious  nature  was  found. 

The  Cap  a  la  Roche  semaphore  at  Deschaillons,  Que.,  which  gives  the  depth 
of  water  in  the  dredged  channel  was  put  in  operation  on  May  1st,  1915,  and 
St.  Nicholas  semaphore  showing  the  available  depth  over  the  midredged  St. 
Augustin  bar  was  started  on  the  same  day. 

The  total  cost  from  1851  to  the  end  of  the  fiscal. year,  March  31,  1916,  of 
the  ship  channel,  including  plant,  shops  surveys,  etc.,  is  as  follows: — - 

Dredging $12,518,963  84 

Plant,  shops,  surveys,  etc 7,533,387  40 


$20,052,351  24 


The  number  of  cubic  yards  dredged  amounted  to  105,989,842,  the  material 
varying  from  very  hard  shale  rock  to  soft  blue  clay.

Dredges. 

Elevator  Dredge  No.  1  {Laval). — This  is  the  oldest  dredge  belonging  to  the 
ship  channel  fleet.  The  hull  is  of  wood,  and  was  constructed  at  Ottawa  in 
1894.  The  buckets  are  cast  steel,  designed  for  work  in  rock  or  other  hard 
material. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15,  general  repairs  to  the  hull  were  made.  The 
machinery  was  given  a  general  overhauling  and  put  in  good  condition  for  the 
next  season's  work.  The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal 
year  beginning  April,  1915,  were  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  1  left  Sorel  for  Montreal  on  May  4,  where  she  was  laid  out  in 
St.  Mary  current,  Montreal  harbour,  to  widen  and  deepen  the  ship  channel  to 
30  feet  at  extreme  low  water  of  1897. 

The  progress  was  slow  owing  to  the  large  number  of  boulders  that  had  to 
be  lifted  out  of  the  dredge's  cut,  necessitating  the  frequent  use  of  a  stone-lifter. 
The  material  to  be  removed  consisted  of  stones,  gravel,  and  many  boulders. 

No.  1  was  kept  working  in  St.  Mary  current  until  November  22,  when  she 
was  taken  down  to  Sorel  to  go  into  winter  quarters. 

She  was  at  work  for  a  total  of  169  days,  and  her  machinery  was  in  operation 
67  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  79,472,  at  a  total 
cost  of  .?62,4.31.45  or  78'5G  centi  per  cubic  yard. 

Elevator  Dredge  No.  2. — The  hull  of  this  dredge  is  of  wood  and  was  con- 
structed at  the  government  shipj^ard,  Sorel,  Que.,  in  1897. 

Dredge  No.  2  is-  equipped  with  a  set  of  cast-steel  buckets  specially  designed 
for  rock  and  other  hard  material. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15,  the  following  repairs  were  made:  One  new 
upper  tumbler  anfl  one  new  lower  tumbler  shaft  and  bush,  and  two  ncAV  rollers 
on  ladder  frame  were  supplied;  the  bottoms  of  chutes  were  renewed;  general 
repairs  made  to  deck  and  deck  houses,  hull  and  deck  work;  outisde  and  inside 
were  painted;  and  other  sundry  repairs  made.  The  main  engine  and  deck  winches 
were  overhauled,  etc.,  also  general  overhauling  of  dynamo  and  electric  installation. 
The  boilers  had  a  few  minor  repairs  done  to  them. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  are  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  2  left  Sorel  on  April  19,  1915,  for  Varennes  curve  to  commence 
the  season's  work,  where  she  was  laid  out  to  deepen  the  channel  to  35  feet  at 
E.L.W.  No.  2  remained  in  operation  at  this  point  until  June  11,  when  she  was 
towed  down  to  be  laid  out  to  work  in  the  ship  channel  at  Stone  island  to  dredge 
to  35  feet  at  E.L.W.  On  July  2,  the  dredge  was  towed  down  to  Grondines,  where 
she  was  laid  out  to  clean  up  lumps  found  in  the  channel  by  the  sweeping  scow, 
after  the  dredges  had  completed  dredging  it  to  30  feet  at  E.L.W. 

This  work  was  finished  on  October  4,  the  dredge  was  then  moved  up  to  do 
more  cleaning  up  in  the  Cap  Charles  channel  to  30  feet  at  E.L.W.  This  was  very 
slow  work  owing  to  the  numerous  boulders  which  had  to  be  lifted  with  a  stone- 
lifter.  No.  2  continued  cleaning  up  in  Cap  Charles  channel  until  November  2, 
when  she  was  towed  up  to  Pointe  aux  Trembles  channel  to  dredge  to  35  feet  at 
E.L.W.,  and  remained  there  in  operation  till  November  25,  when  the  dredge 
was  taken  down  to  Sorel  to  go  into  winter  quarters. 

In  a  total  of  187  days  during  which  No.  2  was  at  work,  her  machinery  was  in 
operation,  58  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time.  The  total  number  of  cubic  yards 
removed  amounted  to  169,596,  at  a  cost  of  $52,641.90,  or  3r04  cents  per  cubic 
yard.

overhauling  and  repairs  to  main  hoisting  winch  were  made,  breasting  and  bow 
winches,  cutter-head  engine,  and  inside  sheathing  and  cover  of  main  centrifugal 
pump  renewed.  Alteration  of  the  piping  of  the  forced-draught  fans,  repairs 
and  electric  welding  on  fvirnaces  of  boilers,  repairs  to  smoke-boxes,^  and  installa- 
tion of  one  new  smokestack.  General  overhauling  of  electric  wires  and  dynamo 
done,  and  syphons  overhauled  and  increased  in  number. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  were  as  follows: — 

On  April  29,  dredge  No.  7  left  Sorel  in  tow  for  curve  No.  2,  lake  St.  Peter, 
where  she  was  laid  out  at  the  lower  end  of  the  curve  to  deepen  the  channel  to 
35  feet  at  E.L.W.  of  1897,  and  continued  working  on  curve  No.  2,  until  July  27, 
when  the  dredge  finished  her  cut  at  the  upper  end  of  the  curve,  where  the 
deepening  to  35  feet  bteween  curve  No.  2  and  No.  1  commenced. 

The  dredge  lost  considerable  time  clue  to  lack  of  steam,  and  the  ciuestion 
of  renewing  her  boilers  will  soon  have  to  be  taken  up  as  they  are  getting  into 
very  bad  condition. 

As  dredge  No.  7  was  in  need  of  certain  repairs  to  her  hull,  and  new  sea- 
cocks to  be  put  in,  it  was  decided  to  take  her  up  to  Montreal  and  place  her  in  the 
Canadian  Vickers  floating  dock,  before  laying  No.  7  out  again  at  Contrecoeur, 
in  the  Contrecoeur  course,  where  it  was  now  the  intention  to  put  her  at  work. 

After  the  pontoons  and  discharge  pipe  had  been  disconnected  and  placed 
in  Chenal  au  Corbeaux  for  safety.  No.  7  left  for  Montreal  in  tow  of  tugs  Frontenac 
and  Lotbiniere  on  July  29.  The  dredge  entered  the  floating  dock  on  July  30 
and  came  out  on  August  5,  and  was  immediately  towed  down  to  Contrecoeur, 
and  placed  in  position  on  August  6  at  the  lower  end  of  Contrecoeur  course  to 
deepen  the  channel  to  35  feet  at  E.L.W.  of  1897. 

The  pontoons  and  discharge  pipe  were  brought  up  and  all  connections 
were  completed,  the  dredge  was  read}-  to  commence  operations  on  August  9. 

Dredge  No.  7  worked  until  September  13,  when  the  cutter-head  shaft  broke, 
necessitating  the  stopping  of  the  dredge  for  several  da.ys,  while  it  was  being 
repaired  at  the  Sorel  shipyard  shops. 

The  repairs  being  completed.  No.  7  began  dredging  again  on  September  22 
and  continued  until  November  20,  when,  owing  to  the  boilers  leaking  so  badly, 
it  was  decided  to  stop  operations  and  clean  up  before  taking  the  dredge  to  Sorel 
to  go  into  winter  quarters.     On  November  25,  No.  7  was  towed  down  to  Sorel. 

In  a  total  of  156  days  during  which  this  dredge  was  at  work,  her  machinery 
was  in  actual  operation  54  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  1,590,805  at  a  cost 
of  $118,221.08,  or  7-43  cents  per  cubic  yard. 

Hopper  Sea-going  Hydraulic  Dredge  A"o.  8  (Beaujeu). — Steel  hull,  twin 
screw.    This  dredge  was  built  at  the  Sorel  shipyard  in  1906. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  wooden  fenders  on  ship's  side  were 
partially  removed,  upper  deck  repaired  and  caulked  and  inside  repainted,  and 
sundry  repairs  made. 

The  machinery  was  given  a  good  overhauling;  the  large  gear-wheel  of  wind- 
lass was  renewed.  The  turbine  shell  plates  inside  were  welded  by  electricity, 
the  turbine  shaft,  leg  bush,  thrust  collars  and  turbine  suction-pipe  were  all 
overhauled  and  repaired,  one  new  cutter-head  shaft  was  supplied,  and  new  plates 
fitted  to  cutter-head.     Alterations  were  also  made  to  the  operating  levers  of

the  gate  valves.  Centre  furnace  of  both  boilers  was  repaired  and  welded,  stay 
bolts  and  eombustion  chamber  made  water-tight,  and  a  few  tubes  packed. 
Also  air,  feed,  and  hydraulic  pumps  repaired.  General  overhauhng  of  auxiliaries 
and  of  electric  wiring  and  dynamo. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  were  as  follows: — 

Dredge  Xo.  S  left  Sorel  for  Quebec  on  April  19,  arriving  there  the  same  day. 
Hail  to  go  into  outside  basin,  to  get  boilers  covered  with  asbestos  and  have 
repairs  done  to  the  rudder.  When  the  work  was  done  N'o.  8  left  Quebec  on 
April  23  and  began  dredging  at  West  Sand,  north  channel,  the  same  daj',  where 
she  continued  working  on  the  north  channel  to  obtain  a  depth  of  35  feet  at 
extreme  low  tide,  and  a  width  of  1,000  feet. 

On  July  14  the  dredge  left  for  ^Montreal  to  enter  Canadian  Vickers  floating 
dock,  to  get  repairs  done  to  her  dumping  doors,  as  some  of  the  shafts  were  bent. 
.Vo.  S  had  to  be  assisted  by  the  C.G.S.  Lady  Grey,  as  her  steering  gear  was  out 
of  order.  The  dredge  entered  the  floating  dock  on  the  16th.  On  the  20th,  the 
repairs  being  completed,  Xo.  S  came  out  of  dock  and  after  taking  coal  continued 
dovni  to  West  Sand,  north  channel,  below  Quebec,  where  she  had  left  off,  reach- 
ing there  at  2  a.m.  next  day. 

The  dredge  worked  at  West  Sand  until  July  22,  and  then  moved  dowTi  to 
east  narrows,  north  channel.  On  the  24th,  Xo.  S  had  to  be  beached  at  St.  Michel, 
to  repair  one  of  the  dumping  doors.  The  repairs  being  finished,  the  dredge  left 
St.  Michel  on  the  26th,  and  returned  to  her  work  at  east  narrows. 

She  continued  working  until  August  25,  Avhen  it  was  necessary  to  take  the 
dredge  to  Quebec,  to  have  the  turbine  discharge  chutes  repaired,  the  cutter- 
head  shaft  being  renewed  at  the  same  time. 

The  repairs  being  done,  A^o.  8  left  Quebec  on  August  27,  for  east  narrows. 
On  September  13  a  bad  break  occurred  to  the  cutter-head  hoisting  engine. 
No.  8  went  up  to  Quebec  and  tied  up  at  the  King's  wharf  while  the  broken  pieces 
were  sent  to  the  Sorel  shops  to  be  repaired.  Machinists  and  boilermakers  from 
the  Quebec  agency  worked  on  board  during  this  time  making  repairs.  Repairs 
being  finishetl,  Xo.  S  left  for  east  narrows  on  September  19. 

On  Saturday',  October  9,  the  dredge  had  to  go  again  to  St.  Michel  to  be 
beached  for  repairs  to  her  dumping  doors,  but  was  back  at  work  on  Monday 
the  11th. 

The  new  self-propelling  hopper  barge  No.  2  was  brought  do■^^^l  on  October 
13  and  loaded  from  Xo.  8  to  test  her  hopper  doors. 

Dredge  A'o.  8  continued  working  at  east  narrows  until  November  24,  and 
left  for  Sorel  to  go  into  winter  quarters  next  day,  reaching  Sorel  on  the  27th. 

In  a  total  of  173  days  during  which  this  dredge  was  at  work,  her  machinery 
was  in  actual  operation  85  per  cent  of  the  full. working  time. 

The  total  number  of,  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  1,515,568  at  a  cost 
of  S84, 230.11,  or  5.56  cents  per  cubic  j-ard. 

Sea-goiny  Suction  Hopper  Dredge  No.  9  (Galveston). — Steel  hull,  twin  screw. 
This  dredge  was  purchased  from  Messrs.  H.  E.  Moss  &  Company,  of  Liverpool, 
England,  in  1906. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  Galveston  wintered  in  the  dr\-dock  at 
St.  Joseph,  de  Levis,  where  extensive  repairs  were  made  to  her  hull  and  dumping 
doors.  The  bow  winch  was  given  a  general  overhauling  and  the  supports 
strengthened.  Apart  from  the  above,  the  following  were  supplied  by  the  Sorel 
shipyard:  new  tail  shafts  fitted,  new  bushes,  turbine  wheels  made  with  blades 
cast  solid,  front  and  cover  of  condenser  4-foot  diameter  renewed,  and  eccentric 
shafts  of  main  engine  re-babbitted  with  metal  supplied  bj'  the  shipyard.  Two

intermediate  slide  valves  and  seats  were  renewed,  and  one  cast-iron  left-hand 
propeller  supjilied. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  were  as  follows: — 

Repairs  being  all  finished,  dredge  No.  9  left  St.  Joseph  de  Levis  on  April  23 
to  commence  dredging  operations  at  West  Sand,  north  channel,  where  she 
continued  working  until  August  10,  the  material  removed  being  sand,  gravel, 
and  stones.     No.  9  then  moved  down  to  east  narrows  and  worked  there. 

On  September  10  the  main  engines  were  found  to  be  so  much  out  of  order 
that  it  was  decided,  in  order  to  save  time,  to  send  the  dredge  to  the  Sorel  ship- 
yard for  the  necessary  repairs.  She  left  at  1.30  p.m.  for  Sorel,  assisted  by  the 
C.G.S.  BeUechasse.  reaching  Sorel  at  4.4.5  p.m.  next  day.  The  repairs  to  the 
main  engines  being  finished  at  6  p.m.,  Octolier  1,  the  dredge  left  for  east  narrows 
at  4  a.m.  next  daj',  arriving  there  at  11  p.m.  that  same  day. 

Owing  to  a  break  in  the  suction  pipe  on  October  12,  it  was  found  necessary 
to  proceed  up  to  Quebec  to  have  the  repairs  done.  These  being  completed  the 
dredge  returned  to  east  narrows  on  the  13th. 

No.  9  was  beached  at  St.  Michel  on  October  14  as  the  slide  of  the  suction 
pipe  was  damaged  and  would  not  work.  Left  St.  Michel  on  October  17  for 
St.  Patrick  hole  to  take  coal  £i-om  coal  barge  No.  5  and  returned  to  the  dredging 
station  that  afternoon. 

On  November  19,  on  account  of  strong  northeast  gale,  No.  9  went  up  to 
anchor  at  St.  Patrick  hole  to  wait  till  the  storm  moderated  in  order  to  beach 
the  dredge  at  St.  Michel  to  plug  up  the  suction  pipe  hole  on  the  starboard  side 
of  the  dredge,  as  she  was  going  into  winter  quarters.  This  was  done  on  the 
20th,  and  the  dredge  then  proceeded  to  Sorel,  reaching  there  next  day. 

The  working  time  of  dredge  No.  9  was  158  days;  she  was  in  actual  operation 
73  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  682,000  at  a  cost 
of  $69,396.55,  or  10. 17  cents  per  cubic  yard. 

Dipper  Dredge  No.  10. — Steel  hull.  This  dredge  was  constructed  at  the 
government  shipyard  at  Sorel,  Que.,    and  completed  in  1910. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  fenders  of  hull,  the  boiler  tubes,  and  doors 
were  repaired;  one  new  smokestack  was  installed;  repairs  to  piston  rods  and 
links  of  main  engines  were  made,  new  plates  with  fibre  for  compression-box  of 
dipper  arm,  all  other  auxiliaries,  such  as  capstan,  engine,  swinging  engine,  etc., 
were  overhauled  and  repaired,  hull  and  deck  work  outside  and  inside  repainted 
and  sundry  repair-work  done. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  were  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  10  began  working  in  Sorel  harbour.  May  3,  cleaning  up  in  front 
of  the  government  shipyard  docks.  On  May  20,  having  completed  the  work, 
No.  10  was  towed  up  to  Pointe  aux  Trembles  to  assist  in  lifting  large  dumping 
scow,  belonging  to  dredge  No.  13,  which  was  sunk  last  autumui.  On  June  10, 
the  work  of  lifting  the  scow  being  completed,  the  dredge  was  taken  down  and  laid 
out  to  widen  the  Repentigny  Traverse  channel  at  He  a  la  Bague,  deepening  to 
15  feet  at  E.L.W.  of  1897,  and  widening  from  300  feet  to  450  feet. 

On  June  25,  the  lower  sheave  of  port  how  spud  broke,  and  it  was  necessary 
to  bring  down  the  floating  crane  from  Montreal  to  lift  the  spud  and  place  it  on 
a  scow,  to  be  taken  down  to  Sorel  for  repairs.  Repairs  being  completed,  the  float- 
ing crane  was  again  brought  down  to  put  back  the  spud.  The  dredge  began 
work  again  on  July  7,  and  continued  working  in  this  locality  till  August  18, 
when  the  cut  was  finished.     On  August  26,  No.  10    was  moved  to  the  head  of

lie  Deslauriers  to  commence  straightening  Cup  St.  Michel  curve  on  the  north 
bank. 

In  the  interval  between  the  above  dates,  the  time  was  occupied  in  changing 
the  short  for  the  long  dipper  arm  and  other  repairs. 

On  August  27,  the  dipper  arm  was  broken  and  had  to  be  replaced  by  the 
short  one,  the  long  one  being  taken  down  to  Sorel  for  repairs. 

The  large  gear-wheel  of  the  main  engine  broke  on  September  30,  and  it 
was  October  9  before  it  was  in  order  again.  Lost  time  during  the  month  with 
the  stern  spud  hoisting  wire  breaking  a  couple  of  times. 

On  November  1  the  services  of  the  floating  crane  were  required  again,  to 
lift  the  stern  spud  out  to  put  in  a  new  sheave,  so  it  was  decided  to  take  No.  10 
up  to  Racine  pier  and  get  the  work  done  there  in  order  to  save  time.  The 
repairs  being  completed  on  No.  10,  the  dredge  was  taken  dowm  to  work  again 
where  she  left  off  at  He  Deslauriers.  One  of  the  bow  spud  keepers  broke  on  the 
10th. 

On  November  13  it  was  decided  to  take  the  dredge  to  Sorel  to  go  into 
winter  cjuarters.  During  the  season  of  1915  the  working  time  of  dredge  No.  10 
was  110  daj's.    She  was  in  actual  operation  60  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  295,500  at  a  cost  of 
$52,998.89,  or  17.93  cents  per  cubic  yard. 

Dipper  Dredge  No.  11. — This  dredge  was  constructed  at  the  Government 
ship^-ard  at  Sorel,  Que.,  and  completed  in  1911.    Steel  hull. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  main  hoisting  swinging  engines  were 
overhauled  and  repaired,  the  capstan  winch,  main  friction  and  hand  brake, 
bands  on  hoisting  drum  were  repaired,  all  valves  and  pistons  readjusted,  upper  were 
reriveted,  and  a  ventilator  fitted  over  galley.  Two  new  high-pressure  pistons 
were  renewed,  condensers  had  six  tubes  removed  and  plugged,  main  stop  valve 
on  boiler  repaired.  General  overhauling  of  auxiliaries,  engine,  boiler,  and  electric 
wiring,  and  repairs  to  hull,  fenders,  etc.,  and  the  hull  and  deck,  outside  and 
inside,  repainted. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  during  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  are  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  11  left  Sorel  on  May  4,  towed  bj-  the  C.G.S.  Frontenac  and  tug 
DeschaiUons,  arriving  at  Alontreal  the  same  day. 

No.  11  was  placed  in  position  next  day  and  the  dredge  got  ready  for  work; 
she  was  laid  out  to  widen  the  Longueuil  "curve  on  the  north  side  of  the  channel. 
It  is  proposed  to  widen  this  channel  to  800  feet,  the  material  being  hard-pan 
and  stones.  Lost  considerable  time  waiting  for  scows,  as  the  derricks  were  not 
able  to  empty  the  flat  scows  fast  enough,  and  also  on  account  of  the  long  distance 
the  dumping  scows  had  to  be  towed  to  the  dumping  ground. 

Dredge  No.  11  was  in  operation  till  August  28,  when  the  stern  spud  hoist- 
ing wire  broke,  which  necessitated  the  services  of  the  harbour  floating  crane. 
The  repairs  being  completed  on  the  1st  September,  the  dredge  continued 
operations  until  November  23,  when  she  was  prepared  to  be  towed  to  Sorel  to 
go  into  winter  quarters. 

Left  Montreal  for  Sorel  on  November  24,  towed  by  the  C.G.S.  Frontenac 
and  tug  DeschaiUons.     Arrived  at  Sorel  at  5.15  p.m. 

The  working  time  of  dredge  No.  11  was  171  days,  the  dredge  being  in  actual 
operation  52  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  410,900  at  a  cost 
of  .161,842.08,  or  15.05  cents  per  cubic  yard. 

Elevator  Dredge  No.  12. — This  dredge  was  constructed  at  the  Sorel  ship- 
yard and  was  completed  in  1912.    Her  hull  is  of  steel. 


HITER  ST.  LAWRENCE  HEIP  CHANNEL  91 

SESSIONAL  PAPER  No.  21 

No.  12  is  fitted  out  with  large  cast-steel  buckets  for  rock  work,  and  can 
dredge  to  a  depth  of  52  feet.  The  breasting  winches  are  similar  to  those  on 
elevator  dredge  No.  5,  using  wire  caWes  instead  of  chains. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  bottom  of  the  dredge  chute  was  sheathed 
with  cast-steel  slabs.  The  a^\ming  over  the  upper  deck  was  replaced  by 
wooden  panels,  the  railings  and  derrick  were  repaired. 

Repairs  to  the  tumbler  shafts  were  made,  and  general  overhauling  of  main 
engines  and  winches  was  made;  hull  and  deck  outside  and  inside  painted,  and 
sundry  other  repairs  carried  out. 

The  details  of  the  operations  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning  April  1,  1915, 
are  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  12  left  Sorel  April  22  for  Pointe  aux  Trembles,  and  was  laid 
out  next  day  to  deepen  the  channel  to  35  feet  at  E.L.W.  Lost  considerable  time 
replacing  bad  links  in  bucket  chain. 

On  May  27  the  dredge  was  taken  down  to  Sorel  to  have  repairs  done  to 
her  bucket  chain.  These  being  completed  on  June  3,  No.  12  was  taken  down 
to  the  foot  of  He  de  Grace  channel  and  laid  out  to  deepen  the  channel  to  35  feet 
at  E.L.W.  and  continued  dredging  in  this  locality  till  June  14,  when  No.  12  was 
towed  dowTi  to  Cap  a  la  Roche  and  laid  out  next  day  at  the  foot  of  Cap  Charles 
channel  on  south  side,  dredging  to  30  feet  at  E.L.W.  of  1897,  material  being 
solid  shale  rock.  Having  finished  her  cut  on  Jul3^  21  the  dredge  was  dropped 
back  to  clean  up  obstructions  found  with  the  testing  scow.  A  great  deal  of 
stoning  with  a  stone-lifter  had  to  be  done  while  cleaning  up,  which  made  progress 
slow. 

On  October  12,  No.  12  having  completed  cleaning  up,  she  was  taken  up  to 
St.  Ours  traverse,  Contrecoeur  channel,  and  laid  out  at  the  lower  end  of  the 
curve  to  widen,  and  deepen  to  35  feet  at  E.L.W.,  the  material  being  clay  and 
small  stones. 

She  contiAued  working  there  until  taken  to  Sorel  on  November  24  to  go 
into  winter  quarters. 

The  working  time  of  dredge  No.  12  was  153  days,  the  dredge  being  in  actual 
operation  62  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  j-ards  removed  amounted  to  198,786  at  a  cost 
of  $56,745.01,  or  28.54  cents  per  cubic  yard. 

Elevator  Dredge  No.  13. — This  dredge  was  constructed  at  the  government 
shipyard  at  Sorel,  Que.,  and  M-as  completed  in  1913.    Her  hull  is  of  steel. 

No.  13  is  fitted  out  with  large  cast-steel  buckets  for  rock  work,  and  can 
dredge  to  a  depth  of  52  feet.  The  breasting  winches  are  similar  to  those  on 
elevator  dredge  No.  12,  using  wire  cables  instead  of  chains. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  ladder  frame  mud  guards  were  repaired. 
Top  plates  of  frame  under  rollers  were  cut  with  the  electric  machine;  rooms  aft

clay.  The  dredged  material  was  utilized  in  making  the  foundation  of  the  com- 
pensation dams  in  He  du  Moine  channel  and  Chenal  Corbeaux.  Having  com- 
pleted her  cut  on  October  19,  No.  IS  was  moved  to  the  lower  end  of  He  de  Grace 
channel,  where  Mo.  12  had  left  off  in  the  spring. 

Dredge  No.  IS  continued  working  here  until  November  26,  when  she  was 
taken  to  Sorel  to  go  into  winter  quarters. 

The  working  time  of  dredge  No.  IS  was  186  days,  during  which  the  dredge 
was  in  actual  operation  60  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  munber  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  791,450  at  a  cost 
of  $61,898.27,  or  7.82  cents  per  cubic  yard.

During  the  winter  of  1914-15  the  bucket  frame  had  holes  cut  in  the  plates 
under  the  rollers  in  order  to  prevent  stones  jamming.  One  of  the  chutes  was 
strengthened  by  doubling  plates  and  channels. 

The  upper  deck  aft  was  caulked  all  over.  The  lower  tumbler-bush  was 
repaired  and  put  in  good  order. 

The  main  throttle-valve  and  the  thrust  of  bucket  frame  Avinch  were  repaired.

and  drains  and  other  auxiliaries.  The  hull  and  deck-work  were  repainted,  and 
sundry  repairs  were  carried  out.  Some  of  the  rivets  were  renewed  on  the  boilers, 
and  some  caulking  done. 

The  details  of  the  operations  of  this  dredge  for  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April    1,    1915,   were  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  14  left  Sorel  on  April  28,  and  was  taken  up  to  St.  Ours  traverse 
(Contrecoeur  channel)  and  was  laid  out  to  work  in  the  channel  to  deepen  to 
35  feet  at  E.L.W.  Having  finished  her  cut  on  June  15,  No.  I4  steamed  down 
to  Sorel  to  get  repairs  done  to  her  lower  tumbler,  and  change  a  cracked  bucket. 
She  returned  to  St.  Ours  traverse  on  June  21,  and  was  laid  out  to  work  on  the 
south  half  of  the  chamxel.  No.  I4  continued  to  work  on  the  south  half  of  Bell- 
mouth  curve  after  the  south  half  of  St.  Ours  traverse  was  finished,  Init  was  obliged 
to  stop  on  August  19,  owing  to  the  lack  of  water  On  the  banks  to  lay  out  the 
breasting  anchors. 

No.  14  went  dowTi  that  same  day  and  was  laid  out  on  the  south  side  to 
widen  the  curve  at  the  foot  of  St.  Ours  traverse,  the  material  being  clay  and 
small  stones.  She  continued  in  operation  here  until  September  20,  when  she 
went  doirtm  to  Sorel  for  repairs  to  the  upper  tumbler. 

The  repairs  being  finished.  No.  I4  left  Sorel  on  September  22,  and  went 
up  to  Vercheres  and  was  laid  out  to  work  on  the  north  half  of  the  channel  between 
Verchcres  and  Cap  St.  jMichel  at  the  lower  end,  to  dredge  to  35  feet  at  E.L.W., 
the  material  being  clay.  Considerable  time  was  lost  during  the  season  owing 
to  trouble  with  the  dumping  scows.  On  November  20,  dredge  No.  I4  picked 
up  her  anchors  and  went  down  to  Sorel  to  go  into  winter  quarters. 

The  working  time  of  dredge  No.  14  was  168  days,  the  dredge  being  in  actual 
operation  66  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  884,400  at  a  cost

in  1914;  steel  buckets,  1  cubic  yard  capacity;  working  capacitj'  per  hour  in  claj', 
800  cubic  yards. 

During  the  winter  of  1914-15,  the  bridge  deck  opposite  wheel-house  was 
cut  and  the  telegraph  shifted  to  give  clearance  to  the  buckets.  One  large  sky- 
light was  installed  on  each  side  of  the  engine-room  casing. 

The  thrust  of  the  ladder-frame  winch  was  strengthened.  The  bearing  of 
the  upper  main  shaft  was  repaired;  one  breasting  winch  frame  repaired,  and  a 
general  overhauling  of  dynamo  engine  and  repairs  to  armature.  Also  new  brass 
rings  to  feed  pump  pistons,  renewal  of  glands  of  rods,  and  piston  rods  of  main

The  hull  and  deck-work  was  repainted  and  sundry  repairs  carried  out. 

The  details  of  this  dredge's  operations  during  the  fiscal  year  beginning 
April  1,  1915,  were  as  follows: — 

Dredge  No.  15  left  Sorel  on  April  27  for  St.  Ours  traverse  (Contrecoeur 
channel),  and  was  laid  out  to  deepen  the  channel  to  35  feet  at  extreme  low  water 
of  1897.  She  continued  working  there  until  the  dredge  cut  was  finished.  On 
September  4,  work  on  repairs  to  the  upper  tumbler  was  begun,  but  it  was  found 
that  it  would  be  a  saving  of  time  to  take  the  dredge  to  Sorel,  so  No.  15  went  down 
on  the  8th.  The  necessarj'  repairs  being  completed  on  September  14,  No.  15 
left  Sorel  for  Vercheres  and  was  laid  out  to  work  on  the  north  half  of  the  channel 
between  Vercheres  and  Cap  St.  Michel,  deepening  to  35  feet  at  E.L.W.,  of  1897. 

Considerable  time  was  lost  during  the  season  owing  to  trouble  with  the 
dumping  scows.  Dredge  No.  15  continued  in  operation  here  until  November  23, 
and  then  steamed  down  to  Sorel  to  go  into  M'inter  ciuarters. 

The  working  time  of  dredge  No.  15  was  172  days,  the  dredge  being  in  actual 
operation  57  per  cent  of  the  full  working  time. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  amounted  to  954,400  at  a  cost 
of  $57,235.01,  or  5.99  cents  per  cubic  yard. 

The  total  number  of  cubic  yards  removed  by  the  dredging  fleet  in  the  ship 
channel  between  Montreal  and  Quebec  during  the  fiscal  year  ending  March  31, 
1916,  amounted  to  6,265,389  at  a  total  cost  of  $822,995.37,  or  13.14  cents  per 
cubic  yard. 

The  total  numl)er  of  cubic  yards  removed  by  dredges  No.  S  (Beaujeu)  and 
No.  9  (Galveston)  in  the  ship  channel  below  Quebec,  during  the  fiscal  year  ending 
March  31,  1916,  amounted  to  2,197,568,  at  a  total  cost  of  $153,626.66,  or  6.99 
cents  per  cubic  yard.

SOREL   SHIPYARD. 

SOREL,  June  7,  1916. 
The  Deputy  Minister  of  Marino, 
X)ttawa,  Ont. 

Sir, —  I  have  the  honour  to  .submit  the  following  annual  report  of  work 
done  at  Sorel  .shipyard  during  the  fi.scal  year  ending  31st  March,  1916. 

At  the  begining  of  the  year,  1st  April,  1915,  the  winter  repairs  and  re- 
newals and  outfitting  of  the  vessels  of  the  St.  Lawrence  Ship  Channel  fleet 
were  practically  all  completed  and  the  crews  being  taken  on  for  the  coming 
season's  work. 

The  Richelieu  river  was  clear  of  ice  on  the  3rd  April,  1915,  and  the  St. 
Lawrence  river,  at  Sorel,  on  the  5th  April,  1915.  The  first  dredge  of  the  fleet 
left  Sorel  to  go  into  commission  on  the  5th  May. 

During  the  season  the  vessels  were  all  maintained  in  a  good  and  serviceable 
condition  and  the  necessary  operating  repairs  carried  out. 

Fifteen  dredges  were  put  and  kept  in  working  condition  during  the  season, 
and  seventeen  tugs  of  the  St.  Lawrence  Ship  Channel  fleet  were  overhauled, 
repaired,  and  painted  during  the  winter  months,  and  minor  repairs  effected 
during  the  summer  months. 

Five  coal  barges,  twenty-six  dumping  scows,  and  four  flat  scows,  stone 
lifters  and  rock  cutter  were  also  repaired  and  kept  in  serviceable  condition. 

The  floating  shop  was  fitted  with  a  steam  engine,  the  former  gas  engine 
not  having  proved  satisfactory,  and  the  fenders  and  deck  were  repaired. 

REPAIRS    TO    DOMINION    STEAMERS. 

LfuJii  Grey  {Ice  breaker). — This  vessel  is  an  ice-breaker,  and  the  repairs  are 
done  during  the  fall.     The  repairs  were  as  follows  during  the  season: — 

General  overhauling  of  deck  eciuipment;  repairs  to  engine  and  auxiliaries. 
The  machinery  was  overhauled  and  heavy  repairs  made  to  boilers,  that  is, 
additional  stay-boks  in  back  of  the  four  boilers;  sixty-two  tubes  were  renewed 
in  the  two  forward  boilers.  Installation  of  one  new  sanitary  pump.  The 
vessel  was  painted  and  varnished  where  required. 

C.G.S.  Frontenac. — Summer  repairs:  This  steamer  was  hauled  out  on 
October  29  to  renew  lignum  vita  in  bushes.  Some  caulking  to  hull  and  deck 
was  made  at  the  same  time.  Engine:  had  just  the  ordinary  repairs  during 
summer. 

Winter  repairs:  Repairs  to  deck-houses  and  wooden  rail,  bulwark,  stanchion, 
combing,  fenders,  and  to  deck.  Engine:  pistons  of  main  engine  were  repaired, 
and  machinery  overhauled. 

A  coat  of  paint  was  applied  inside  and  outside  of  vessel  as  usual  in  spring. 

C.G.S.  Bollard. — Sunuuer  repairs  (hull):  During  the  summer  the  upper 
deck  was  caulked  once,  and  the  vessel  was  painted. 

Machinery:  Some  caulking  was  done  to  the  boiler  besides  the  ordinary 
winter  repairs. 

Winter  repairs:  This  vessel  was  prepared  for  sea-going,  which  necessitated 
the  stiffening  of  hatches,  building  of  bi'eakwater,  etc.  The  oil-heating  system 
of  the  boiler  was  changed  into  the  coal-heating  system.  The  oil  tanks  in  the 
bunkers  had  to  bo  cut  in  pieces  and  removed. 

Wood  sheathing  was  placed  on  the  bunker  floor,  deck  hatches  installed, 
and  also  grate  bars  to  furnaces.

inches  long,  with  a  working  pressure  of  120  pounds  per  square  inch,  and  will 
be  built  in  the  shipyard. 

The  vessel  would  have  been  ready  by  the  end  of  May,  1916,  but  owing  to 
delaj's  in  delivery  of  materials  owing  to  the  present  war  conditions,  delivery 
will  be  a  little  later. 

No.  63. — This  vessel,  named  Coal  Barge  N^o.  6,  is  a  single-screw,  steel 
coal  barge  for  use  on  the  St.  Lawrence  Ship  channel,  of  the  following  dimensions: 
Length,  B.P.,  165  feet  0  inches;  length  O.A.,  172  feet  0  inches;  breadth 
moulded,  32  feet  0  inches;  depth  moulded,  13  feet  0  inches;  draught,  loaded, 

10  feet  8J^  inches;  dead-weight,  750  tons. 

The  vessel  has  been  built  with  five  watertight  bulkheads,  double  bottom 
in  engine  room  to  act  as  a  reserve  feed  tank,  having  a  capacity  of  11  tons,  and

SESSIONAL    PAPER    No.   21 

a  trimming  tank  forward.     A  fresh-water  tank  is  fitted  in  the  hold    with    a 
capacity  of  5  ton.s. 

There  are  two  holds  with  large  hatches  and  a  revolving  steam  crane  with 
a  clam  fitted  between  the  hatches  for  handling  coal,  with  a  travelling  shoot 
on  each  side  of  the  vessel  for  the  rapid  coaling  of  the  dredges. 

The  crane  is  also  arranged  for  lifting  weights  up  to  6  tons,  so  that  the 
vessel  can  be  used  for  buoy  service  in  spring  and  fall  if  required. 

The  vessel  was  launched  November  18,  1915;  the  engines  and  boilers  put 
on  board,  and  will  be  completed  read}'  for  service  in  May,  191G. 

Nos.  64  to  67. — These  constructions  are  four  steel  dumping  scows  of  the 
following  dimensions: — Length  O.A.,  100  feet  0  inches;  breadth  moulded, 
29  feet  0  inches;  depth  moulded,  10  feet  3  inches;  capacity,  250  cubic  yards. 

They  are  fitted  with  hydraulic  machinery  similar  to  that  fitted  on  the 
other  steel  scows.  The  first  three  were  launched  in  the  fall  of  1915;  the  last 
one  will  be  launched  in  the  early  summer,  1916. 

During  the  winter  the  whole  fleet  of  the  ship  channel  has  been  overhauled 
as  to  navigation  lights  and  brought  up  to  the  latest  regulations  in  every  respect. 

The  question  of  life-saving  appliances  was  also  looked  into.  All  life-buoys 
and  belts  being  tested,  and  replaced  where  found  defective.  The  dimensions 
of  the  small  boats  are  being  looked  into  at  the  time  of  writing  this  report. 

In  addition  to  other  work,  the  making  of  steel  buoys  for  the  Chief  Engineer's 
department  has  been  commenced  during  this  year,  and  up  to  March  31,  1916, 
the  following  have  been  practically  completed: — Four  automatic  whistling 
buoys,  six  bell  buoy  floats,  7  large  gas  and  whistling  buoys,  one  hundred  steel  • 
spar  buoys  to  replace  wooden  ones  in  use.  These  buoys  were  for  various  har- 
bours on  the  Atlantic  and  Pacific  coasts. 

GENERAL. 

Owing  to  war  conditions,  every  economy  possible  was  exercised  in  the 
carrying  out  of  the  work  in  the  shipyard.  No  expensive  alterations  or  im- 
provements were  made  to  the  machinery  or  buildings. 

The  painting  throughout  the  yard  was  also  delayed  for  one  season.  The 
foundations  of  the  office  building  and  one  or  two  others  where  necessary  were 
overhauled  and  put  in  good  order. 

The  shipyard  launches  Margot,  Buffalo,  and  Bronx  were  maintained  in 
good  order  and  painted.  The  Margot  has  been  employed  by  the  Lights  Depart- 
ment all  season,  and  has  done  very  good  work  for  them. 

All  the  fences  were  repaired  where  necessary,  and  whitewashed  during  the 
season. 

The  shipyard  hauling-out  ways  were  extensively  repaired  and  otherwise 
kept  in  good  order. 

The  force  employed  during  the  fiscal  year  varied  from  1,075  in  September, 
1915,  to  650  in  March,  1916.     The  daily  average  being  about  850. 

On  March  2  last,  the  shipyard  carpenter  shop,  a  wooden  structure  about 
220  feet  by  35  feet,  one  story  high,  was  destroyed  by  fire.  The  cause  of  the 
fire  is  unknown.  Work  on  the  foundations  for  a  new  building  was  begun  during 
end  of  fiscal  year. 

The  financial  statement  shows  the  total  amount  expended  on  the  shipyard 
and  ship  channel  to  have  been  $1,530,642.10. 

I  have  the  honour  to  be,  sir, 

Yout  obedient  servant, 

W.  S.  JACKSON, 

Superintendent  of  Shipyard,

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.   21 


APPENDIX  No.  6. 
METEOROLOGICAL   SERVICE 

Toronto,  May  25,  1916. 

The  Deputy  Minister  of  Marine, 
Ottawa,  Ont. 

Sir: — I  have  the  honour  to  submit  the  forty-fifth  Annual  Report  of  the 
Meteorological  Service  for  the  fiscal  year  ended  March  31,  1916. 

Meteorological  returns  have  been  received  at  the  central  oflice  from  532 
stations,  including  telegraph  reporting  stations  and  climatological  stations,  but 
not  including  storm  signal  stations  which  are  112  in  number. 

For  various  duties  in  connection  with  the  service  370  persons,  chiefly 
observers,  have  been  in  receipt  of  pay,  and  of  this  number  thirty-four  were 
employed  in  the  central  office. 

During  the  year  the  number  of  observing  stations  has  increased  in  the 
aggregate  by  forty-two;  sixty-eight  new  stations  having  been  opened,  while 
twenty-six  were  closed. 

The  closing  of  stations  is  always  to  be  regretted,  as  the  longer  the  record  at 
a  place  the  more  valuable  it  is.  In  the  early  days  of  the  service  nearly  all 
stations  were  established  on  a  wholly  voluntary  basis,  but  as  years  passed  it  was 
found  that  in  order  to  obtain  observers  in  outlying  localities  such  as  Hudson 
bay  posts  in  the  north,  and  at  places  away  from  populous  centres,  it  was  necessary 
to  pay  small  stipends,  and  thus  quite  a  number  of  stations  ere  long  had  an 
annual  allowance  ranging  between  ,$18  and  $100. 

Subsequently,  it  was  recognised  that  while  at  some  places  the  same  voluntary 
observer  continued  observing  through  a  long  term  of  years,  at  the  majority  of 
the  stations,  the  work  was  of  a  desultory  character,  and  the  observing  duties 
were  turned  over  from  one  to  another  and  there  were  long  breaks  which  vitiated 
the  value  of  the  station's  records. 

With  the  advent  of  electrical  power  came  a  great  demand  from  engineers 
for  information  regarding  the  rainfall  over  water  sheds  of  our  southward  flowing 
rivers,  and  the  information  desired  was  the  average  value  of  the  rainfall,  the 
average  periodic  variations,  the  secular  change,  and  the  average  non-periodic 
variability.  Accurate  information  with  these  details  cannot  yet  be  fully 
supplied. 

Again,  with  the  movement  towards  forest  conservation  and  the  establish- 
ment of  the  great  pulp  industries  came  numerous  applications  for  the  same 
information  as  the  electrical  engineer  had  asked  for. 

Then  again,  the  Uovernment  and  Railway  departments  dealing  with  the 
problems  of  irrigation  in  the  western  provinces,  found  the  same  information  was 
essential  to  the  economic  conduct  of  their  work,  and  lastly  Government  com- 
missions have  found  exact  meteorological  data  necessary  in  connection  with  the 
Waterways  Treaty  between  Canada  and  the  United  States. 

The  Superintendent  of  Irrigation  wrote  me  in  March,  1915,  as  follows: — 

"In  connection  with  the  division  of  the  water  of  St.  Mary  and  Milk 
rivers  between  Canada  and  the  United  States,  under  the  provisions  of 
article  vi  of  the  Waterways  Treaty,  this  branch  has  for  several  years  been 


140 


MARixE  A\n  fisheries; 


7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

collecting  stream  flow  data  on  these  two  rivers  and  their  tributaries  in 
Canada.  Similar  work  has  been  carried  on  by  the  Geological  Survey  in 
the  state  of  Montana.  It  is  a  question,  however,  whether  the  measured 
fiow  is  a  true  indication  of  the  total  volume  of  water  falling  on  this  water- 
shed. Possibly  a  computation  based  upon  precipitation  records  and 
computed  runoff  in  the  different  portions  of  the  watershed  might  produce 
a  very  different  total  volume  of  water  to  be  divided  between  the  two 
countries." 

"Will  you  be  kind  enough  to  let  me  know  whether  the  records  of 
Canada  and  the  United  States  will  permit  you  to  divide  this  watershed 
into  lielts  or  zones  ami  to  state,  more  or  less  definitely,  the  amount  of  the 
annual  precipitation  and  runoff  in  each  such  zone.  If  this  can  be  done 
with  a  reasonable  degree  of  accuracy,  and  if  the  number  of  years'  obser^ 
vations  upon  which  each  statement  is  based  can  be  given,  the  result  may 
be  very  useful  in  the  preparation  of  the  Canadian  case." 

In  view  of  these  various  urgent  demands  for  rainfall  data,  it  became  necessary 
for  the  Meteorological  Service,  under  which  the  Cliniatological  Survey  has  been 
placed,  to  take  such  action  as  would  insure  continuous  observations  of  rainfall 
at  numerous  stations  well  distrilnited  over  the  Dominion. 

It  has  then  been  well  proved  that  to  ensure  continuous  accurate  obser- 
vations, small  salaries  nuist  be  allowed  to  make  it  worth  the  while  of  the  busy 
man  to  attend  with  regularity  to  the  work  required  of  him.  It  has  lieen  this 
consideration  which  has  led  to  my  asking  for  the  establishment  of  numerous 
rainfall  stations  with  the  small  annual  stipend  of  .$48  attached  to  each  of  them — 
and  our  experience  to  the  present  time  indicates  bej'ond  pcradventure,  that  the 
system  is  a  good  one,  and  w'ill  alone  provide  for  a  satisfactory  network  of  homo- 
geneous stations,  and  lessen  the  number  which  will  be  closed  annually.

CENTKAL    OFFICE. 


Since  my  last  report  Mr.  Basil  Cody  has  resip:ned  from  the  staff  of  the 
central  office  and  W.  D.  Allan,  Lt.-Col.,  2nd  Battalion,  C.E.F.,  is  still  on  active 
service,  and  there  have  been  no  new  appointments. 


FORECAST    BRANCH. 


As  it  happens,  both  the  above  named  assistants  were  attached  to  the  fore- 
cast branch  which  is  in  consequence  under-manned,  and  most  of  the  work  is 
being  done  liy  the  director  and  assistant  ilirector,  who  with  one  assistant  take 
equal  turns  of  night  duty.  Of  the  daily  forecasts  issued  during  the  year,  85.6 
per  cent  were  verified  and  of  the  storm  warnings,  87.4.  Forecasts  and  storm 
warnings  have  also  been  issued  with  the  same  regularity  for  Newfoundland'as 
for  Canada,  and  with  a  marked  degree  of  success,  but  no  acknowledgment  of 
the  work  performed  has  been  received  from  that  country  either  of  a  financial 
character  or  as  a  letter  of  thanks. 

Fewer  gales  than  frequently  occur  dtu'ing  a  like  period  were  experienced  in 
Ontario,  Quebec,  and  the  Maritime  Provinces  tluring  the  season  of  navigation 
in  the  fiscal  year  from  April,  1915,  to  March  31,  1916,  inclusive.  There  were, 
however,  several  cpiite  remarkable  summer  storms,  the  most  notable  being  the 
severe  gales  in  the  St.  Lawrence  vallej',  on  the  22nd  of  June  and  the  9th  July, 


142       -  MARINE  AyD  FISHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

and  the  one  in  the  lower  lake  region  on  the  3rd  of  August.  There  was  also  a  violent 
early  autumn  gale  in  the  gulf  of  St.  LawTcnce  and  the  Maritime  Provinces  on 
the  26th  of  September  which  caused  several  disastrous  wrecks,  besides  much 
other  damage.  November,  as  is  usually  the  case,  was  responsible  for  many  gales 
on  the  Great  Lakes,  three  out  of  the  seven  being  fresh  to  heavy,  whereas  Febru- 
ary and  March  were  marked  by  a  succession  of  heavy  gales  in  the  Maritime 
Provinces. 

The  gale  on  the  22nd  of  June  was  not  warned;  the  fresh  gale  in  the  maritime 
provinces  on  the  28th  of  January  was  also  missed,  and  a  warning  issued  to  the 
lower  lake  region  on  the  20th  of  August  in  advance  of  a  West  India  hurricane 
which  had  caused  great  damage  in  the  gulf  of  Mexico  and  the  Gulf  States  was 
not  verified.  The  remains  of  the  storm  actually  passed  directly  over  lake 
Ontario  on  the  21st  but  with  so  much  diminished  energy  that  strong  winds 
only  prevailed,  attended  by  heavy  rains.  With  the  few  exceptions  mentioned, 
all  the  gales  were  predicted  and  in  nearly  every  case  in  advance  of  the  beginning 
of  the  storm,  the  percentage  of  verification  for  the  heavy  gales  being  as  high 
as  90  per  cent. 

PUBLICATION    BR.\NCH. 

The  results  obtained  from  the  returns  received  from  the  numerous 
metcrological  stations  have  been  used  in  the  preparation  of  the  various  regular 
publications  of  the  service,  including  the  Annual  Climatological  Report,  the 
Monthly  Weather  Review,  the  Monthly  Map  and  the  Report  of  the  Toronto 
Observatory.  In  aildition  to' these  regular  publications  the  service  has  issued 
a  booklet  on  the  "  Temperature  and  Precipitation  of  British  Columbia"  which 
gives  in  detail  the  climatic  features  of  that  .province.  Similar  booklets  for  the 
other  provinces  are  to  follow,  and  the  whole  will  sulisequently  be  bound  together 
There  has  also  been  issued  a  small  brochure  on  the  "Climate  of  Canada."

PHYSICS    BRANCH. 

Upper  Air. — Throughout  1915  the  international  lialloon  work  was  com- 
plete'y  disorganized,  but  for  1916,  as  many  of  the  nations  are  coutiiuiing  the 
work  during  the  war,  a  list  of  international  days  has  been  arranged  and  is  being - 
followed  in  Canada.  In  1915  one  balloon  a  month  was  sent  up,  except  in  June, 
when  three  were  dispatched,  the  dates  corresponding  with  those  selected  in 
Britain. 

The  recoveries  during  the  year  were  not  good,  and  only  11  out  of  16  have 
been  found  up  to  the  present.     Previous  to  1915,  all  meteorographs  recovered

the  southeasterly  current  extended:  it  is  the  third  occasion  on  which  a  balloon 
was  found  west  of  the  starting  point. 

The  results  of  all  the  ascents  up  to  May,  1915,  have  been  worked  out  in 
ordinary  and  absolute  units  according  to  the  request  of  the  International  Meteoro- 
logical Committee,  and  published  in  a  paper  on  Upper  Air  Investigation  in 
Canada,  Part  1,  M.S.  51 

Part  2  of  the  Investigation  will  contain  an  account  of  the  kite  work  and  is 
now  in  the  press.  A  number  of  records  of  the  pilot  balloons  sent  up  in  the  Arctic 
have  been  received  and  from  those  worked  out  it  is  anticipated  very  valuable 
information  will  be  obtained  in  regard  to  the  air  currents  in  the  Arctic. 

Radiation. — The  comparison  of  the  Angstrom  pyrheliometer  with  the 
Callendar  Sunshine  Receiver  has  been  completed,  and  the  results  obtained 
suggest  the  possibility  of  designing  a  new  form  of  sunshine  receiver  that  will 
eliminate  some  of  the  defects  of  the  present  form. 

The  Callendar  sunshine  receiver  has  been  in  operation  throughout  the  year, 
and  whenever  opportunity  occurred  the  measurement  of  the  amount  of  heat 
received  on  a  surface  exposed  perpendicular  to  the  sun's  rays  has  been  measured 
bj^  the  Angstrom  pyrhefiomete  ■. 

The  results  to  date  for  both  instruments  have  lieen  reduced,  and  the  mean 
is  given  in  the  following  table  for  each  month.

Anemometer  Comparison  — The  anemometer  in  use  at  Canadian  stations 
has  never  been  compared  with  those  in  use  in  other  countries:  it  is  designed 


144  MARINE  A\D  FIfiHERIES 

7  GEORGE   V,   A.   1917 

on  the  assumption  that  the  distance  travelled  hy  the  wind  is  three  times  the 
distance  travelled  by  the  centre  of  the  anemometer  cups  in  the  same  time.  This 
factof  has  been  found  to  be  too  high  in  other  countries,  and  for  the  standard 
anemometer  at  Kew,  the  factor  2-2  instead  of  3  has  been  found  to  be  correct. 
The  Dines  pressure  tube  anemometer  has  been  very  carefully  compared  on 
a  whirlinfj  machine  and  with  the  Kew  standard;  for  this  reason  a  pressure  tube 
anemometer  was  erected  on  the  same  tower  as  the  Canadian  cup  anemometer 
four  years  ago,  and  the  records  given  by  the  two  instruments  have  been  com- 
pared. The  mean  of  all  velocities  gives  the  cup  anemometer  readings  1  •  357 
time  those  of  the  pressure  tube.  If  however,  the  factor  2-2  instead  of  3  is 
used,  the  cup  anemometer  and  pressure  tube  would  be  practically  indentical. 

Electric  Potential  of  the  Air. — The  self  recording  electrometer  for  measuring 
the  potential  of  the  air  has  been  in  operation  throughout  the  year,  and  the  results 
to  date  will  be  published  shortly. 

Evnpcyration. — Observations  on  evaporation  have  been  made  at  the  central 
office  for  some  years,  and  during  the  past  two  years  the  observations  have  been 
continued  during  the  winter  by  weighingt  a  pan  of  water  or  ice,  and  from  the 
loss  in  weight  from  day  to  day,  the  amount  of  evaporation  has  been  calculated. 
Owing  to  the  increasing  requests  for  evaporation  data,  it  is  proposed  to  extend 
the  ob.servations  this  year  and  establish  evaporation  stations  at  about  seven 
places  in  the  Dominion. 

Earth  temperature. — Mr  Patterson  has  designed  a  special  commutator 
for  use  with  resistance  thermometers  by  means  of  which  it  will  be  possible 
to  get  continuous  records  of  earth  temperatures  at  various  depths  on  one  instru- 
ment, and  it  is  hoped  to  get  it  in.stalled  during  the  year. 

Barograph  atid  Thermograph. — The  barograph  and  thermograph  obtained 
for  recording  the  pressure  and  temperature  on  the  top  of  Sulphur  mountain 
at  Banff  has  been  overhaided  in  the  office,  and  they  will  now  work  about  a  month 
without  lequiring  attention.  Mr.  Patterson  has  substituted  a  mercurial 
barometer  for  the  aneroid  on  the  barograph  and  by  means  of  a  float  arranged 
to  compensate  for  temperature  changes,  he  has  converted  the  barograph  into 
a  compensated  mercurial  barograph  recording  at  a  distant  station. 

TERRESTRIAL  MAGNETISM. 

The  photographic  magnetic  instruments  have  been  kept  in  operation 
throughout  the  year  without  any  material  loss  of  record.  The  value  of  the  base 
line  for  declination  was  determined  from  weekly  observations  with  the  absolute 
declinometer  The  observations  were  usually  made  on  Monday  and  comprise 
four  sets  of  eight  pointings  on  the  magnet  taken  in  conjunction  with  eye  readings 
of  the  photographic  instrument.  For  horizontal  force  the  base  Tne  was  deter- 
mined twice  a  month  as  before.  In  the  case  of  the  vertical  force,  it  was  found 
necessary  to  increase  the  number  o  absolute  observations  to  four  per  week 
in  order  to  reduce  the  probable  error  to  +  27. 

The  westerly  declination  has  increased  from  6°  27'  -2  in  March,  1915, 
to  6°  32'  -2  in  March,  1916,  an  annual  change  of  5'  -0.  The  horizontal  force 
has  decreased  during  the  same  period  from  0- 16039  dynes  to  0- 15983,  an  annual 
change  ot  0- 00056  dynes,  whilst  the  vertical  force  has  decreased  from  0-58673 
dynes  to  0-58553.  This  change  in  horizontal  and  vertical  force  is  equivalent 
to  a  change  in  the  inclination  from  74°  42'  -  7  to  74°  43°  •  9. 

^Magnetic  disturbances  were  of  very  frequent  occurrence  during  the  year, 
the  month  of  February,  1916,  being  the  only  month  during  which  no  large 
disturbance  was  recorded.  The  greatest  storm  was  on  June  17,  which  was 
remarkable  both  for  its  duration,  the  magnitude  of  the  disturbing  forces  and 
the  rapidity  with  which  the  forces  changed.     The  extreme  values  of  declination 


METEOROLOGICAL  REPORT  145 

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 

during  this  storm  were  5°  6-2  W.  and  8°  21-7  W.  The  horizontal  force  ranged 
from  0-5586  dynes  to  0-16418  dynes  and  the  vertical  force  from  0-58040 
dynes  to  0-59152  dynes. 

Other  disturbances  worthy  of  note  were  recorded  on  August  25,  October 
15,  and  November  5  and  6  of  1915  and  on  March  17,  1916,  but  neither  in  ampli- 
tude nor  duration  are  any  of  these  comparable  to  that  of  June  17,  1915. 

The  mean  diurnal  range  obtained  from  the  hourly  measures  varied  in 
declination  from  a  maximum  of  14'  -4  in  August,  1915,  to  a  minimum  of  6' -5 
in  December,  1915,  in  horizontal  force  from  a  maximum  of  0- 00052  dynes 
in  August  to  a  minimum  of  0- 00028  dynes  in  December,  and  in  vertical  force 
from  a  maximum  of  0-00032  dynes  in  November,  1915,  to  a  minimum  of  0-00006 
dynes  in  December,  1915,  and  February,  1916. 

In  November,  at  the  recjuest  of  Dr.  L.  A.  Bauer,  Director  of  the  Department 
of  Terrestrial  Magnetism  of  the  Carnegie  Institution  of  Washington,  Mr.  Jackson 
of  the  Observatory  staff  was  sent  to  Washington  in  order  to  make  a  series  of 
comparisons  between  the  Agincourt  magnetic  instruments  and  the  International 
magnetic  standard  as  determined  by  Dr.  Bauer.  The  results  of  these 
comparisons  are  as  follows: — 

I. M.S. — Agincourt  (Standard  Declinometer)  =  -0'.93 

I.M.S.— Agincourt  (EHiott  Magnetometer  98)=  -^0. 00033  H 

I.M.S.— Agincourt  (Toepfer  Inductor  No.  89)=  -0'.15 

Commencing  January,  1916,  all  Agincourt  data  will  be  reducM  to  inter- 
national magnetic  standard. 

During  the  year  129  comparisons  attached  to  surveyors'  transits,  were 
adjusted  and  compared  with  the  Agincourt  standard  declinometer,  and  the 
index  corrections  resulting  therefrom  were  supplied  to  the  Surveyor  General. 
Assistance  was  given  to  Messrs.  Purser,  Wight  and  Robinson,  of  the  Department 
of  the  Interior,  in  standardizing  their  total  force  magnetic  instruments  both 
before  and  after  their  field  work. 

Mr.  French  of  the  Dominion  Observatory  was  also  given  assistance  in 
comparing  his  magnetometer  with  the  Agincourt  standards  both  before  and  after 
his  fi^d  work. 

TIME    SERVICE. 

During  the  year,  fifty-nine  determinations  for  time  have  l>een  made  by 
transit  of  stars  in  the  meridian  with  the  3-inch  Troughton  and  Simms  transit 
instrument.  Cloudiness  during  part  of  November  and  February  prevented 
frequent  observations  for  time.  The  positions  of  the  stars  have  been  taken 
mostly  from  the  American  Ephemeris  and  British  Nautical  Almanac. 

The  collimation  error  of  the  transit  instrument,  as  in  former  years,  has  been 
chiefly  determined  by  reversal  on  Polaris  and  occasionally  in  conjunction  with 
that  of  the  instrumental  azimuth  error  as  determined  by  star  transits  in  reverse 
position  of  the  axis  using  the  method  of  least  squares  in  their  computation. 

Time  has  been  given  over  the  telegraph  and  telephone  lines  to  all  inquirers 
as  also  the  siderial  time  which  has  been  frequently  called  for. 

The  performance  of  the  clocks  has  been  very  satisfactory.  The  new 
Magneta  clock  with  its  system  of  secondary  clocks  has  been  running  a  year 
without  a  failure  since  installment.  The  automatic  synchronizer  by  which 
it  is  made  to  synchronize  with  the  mean  time  master  clock  has  also  done  the 
same  perfect  work. 

The  pier  of  the  transit  clock  still  shows  a  slight  progressive  sinking  towards 
the  East  but  is  of  small  amount. 

The  time  exchanges  between  Toronto  and  Quebec,  Montreal  and  St.  John, 
N.B.,  have  been  made  as  usual,  being  recorded  on  the  chronographs  at  Toronto,

Montreal  and  St.  John.     The  errors  of  the  clocks  have  been  computed  from  the 
latest  observations. 

The  usual  11.55  a.m.  signal  on  the  fire  alarm  system  has  been  continued 
throughout  the  year.  Time  has  been  given  weekly  to  the  magnetic  observatory 
at  Agincourt  and  daily  to  the  Canadian  Northern  Railway  out  of  Toronto. 

The  following  talsle  will  show  the  differences  between  the  times  at  the  several 
observatories  and  that  at  Toronto.     The  sign  +  indicates  slow  of  Toronto: —

SUN    SPOTS,    1915-16. 

During  the  year  .April  1,  1915,  to  April  1,  1916,  the  sun's  surface  was 
examined  with  the  6-inch  equatorial  telescope  on  149  days,  and  maps  showing 
the  relative  positions  of  spots  on  145  of  those  days  were  made.  The  N.,  S.,  E., 
and  W.  points  were  defined  and  also  the  sun's  axis  and  equator.  During  the 
progress  of  the  solar  eclipse  of  February  3,  1915,  several  good  photographs  were 
secured  as  well  as  sketches.  Owing  to  cloudiness  the  time  of  beginning  and 
ending  of  the  eclipse  could  not  be  determined  by  observation. 

On  April  3  a  large  spot,  followed  by  several  medium  sized  and  small  spots, 
extending  easterly  for  a  considerable  distance,  was  observed  in  northeastern 
quadrant  of  sun,  disappearing  over  western  limb  on  April  11.  On  the  20th 
April  a  group  of  small  penumbral  spots  with  very  small  ones  rather  suddenly 
developed  in  southeastern  quadrant,  disappearing  over  western  limb  on  26th. 
Two  scattered  groups  of  small  spots,  equidistant  north  and  south  of  equator, 
traversed  the  sun's  di.sk  April  27  to  May  8.  No  spots  were  seen  on  May  11, 
15,  17,  and  18.  May  25  to  June  2  a  small  northerly  group  with  one  medium 
sized  penumbral  spot  passed  over  the  sun's  disk.  J'rom  June  14  to  29  numerous 
scattered  groups,  both  north  and  south  of  equator,  were  observed.  On  July  6 
a  large  group  came  over  southeastern  limb  disappearing  over  southwestern 
limb  July  16.  On  29th  another  very  large  group  came  over  southeastern  limb, 
developing  into  a  magnificent  display  of  small  penumbral  spots  followed  by  an 
immense  area  of  very  small  spots.  This  group  presented  a  fine  spectacle  and 
covered  an  enormous  area  extending  in  a  northwesterly  direction  south  of  the 


METEOIfOLOaiCAL  REPORT  147 

SESSIONAL   PAPER   No.  21 

equator.  After  this  display  nothing  of  note  occurred  except  the  passage  of 
occasional  small  groups  north  and  south  of  the  equator  until  September  21, 
when  a  small  group  about  10  degrees  north  of  the  equator  traversed  the  sun's 
surface  going  over  the  western  limb  on  September  30.  This  condensed  group 
was  remarkable  for  its  very  beautiful  large  penumbral  spot. 

Between  October  4,  1915,  and  March  2,  1916,  several  not  very  prominent 
groups  appeared  both  north  and  south  of  the  equator.  Two  moderately  large 
spots  with  attending  smaller  ones  passed  across  the  sun's  disk,  eciuidistant 
north  and  south  of  the  equator  from  March  2  to  13.  A  fairly-large  sized  group 
was  observed  on  March  23  and  25  north  of  the  equator,  but  cloudiness  prevented 
continual  observation  of  this  group.  At  the  end  of  the  year  March  31,  the  sun's 
surface  was  occupied  by  four  small  groups  north  of  the  equator  and  a  disturbed 
area  in  southeast  quadrant. 

SEISMOLOGY. 

The  Milne  seismographs  at  Toronto  and  Victoria  have  yielded  some  very 
interesting  records.  A  seismograph  for  registering  the  vertical  component, 
recording  on  smoked  paper,  has  recently  been  installed  at  Victoria,  and  is  work- 
ing very  satisfactorily.  During  the  year  the  total  number  of  disturbances 
recorded  at  Toronto  was  123.  Of  this  number  three  were  very  large.  Fourteen  were 
of  a  more  moderate  character,  and  the  remainder  show  trace  amplitude  ranging 
from  0-1  to  2  mm.  Not  only  was  the  total  number  greater  than  that  which  we 
usually  record,  but  from  May,  there  was  a  marked  increase  in  the  intensity  of 
the  disturbances.  The  most  important  of  the  series  occurred  on  September  7, 
October  3,  and  January  1.  The  latter  disturbance  was  one  of  the  largest  we  ever 
recorded  at  Toronto.  The  earthquake  centres  were  located  respectively  in 
Guatemala,  Nevada  and  in  the  South  Pacific,  the  latter  being  submarine; 
possibly  in  the  vicinity  of  the  New  Hebrides.  The  more  moderate  disturbances 
were  recorded  on  May  1,  June  1,  July  31,  October  11,  November  1,  and  21, 
December  12  and  31,  January  13  and  19,  Febriuiry  1,  6,  20  and  27.  The  majority 
were  of  submarine  origin,  the  earthquake  centre  being  in  the  vicinity  of  the 
Kurile  islands,  Alaska,  and  off  the  coast  of  Central  America. 

Seismologists  at  present  are  chiefly  investigating  the  question  of  the  true 
velocity  of  earthquake  waves  through  the  various  depths  of  the  earth.  The 
present  Milne  instrument  fails  at  times  to  register  the  P.  and  S.  waves.  The 
British  Association  is  desirious  of  introducing  a  perfect  modification  of  the 
present  Milne  instrument,  by  increasing  the  magnification  of  the  record  and 
applying  a  certain  amount  of  damping  of  the  boom  which  will  shew  the  pre- 
liminary waves  more  distinctly  and  give  a  truer  representation  of  the  earth 
movements.  It  is  to  be  hoped  that  both  our  stations  will  be  equipped  with  the 
type  of  instrument  which  they  adopt.  It  would  also  be  advisable  to  introduce 
at  Toronto  an  instrument  for  registering  on  smoked  paper,  as  very  often  the 
press  seek  information  regarding  some  earthquake  that  has  just  been  reported, 
and  as  it  takes  some  time  to  cut  off  the  film  of  the  present  Milne  instrument 
and  develop  it,  it  is  some  little  time  before  the  required  information  can  be 
furnished.  Monthly  tabulations  of  all  seismic  disturbances  are  forwarded  to 
the  Central  Seismological  Observatory  of  the  British  Association  and  to  various 
other  countries  and  an  increased  demand  for  copies  of  our  observations  from 
scientific  institutions  all  over  the  world  point  to  the  importance  attached  to 
our  records. 

PHENOLOGICAL    OBSERVATIONS. 

The  collection  and  tabulation  of  phenological  statistics,  which  are  in  charge 
of  Mr.  F.  F.  Payne,  were  not  quite  as  extensive  as  in  past  years,  but  a  few  reports

giving  the  dates  of  flowering  plants,  the  arrival  of  birds,  the  sowing  and  reaping 
of  grain,  etc.,  were  received  from  each  province,  and  they  agree  very  fairly  with 
the  meteorological  conditions.  Valuable  reports  giving  average  dates  of  similar 
phenomena  recorded  throughout  the  province  of  Nova  Scotia  were  kindly  sup- 
plied as  usual  by  the  superintendent  of  education  for  that  province,  and  others 
from  school  teachers  have  also  been  supplied  by  the  Department  of  Education 
for  Saskatchewan  which  is  now  using  this  as  a  means  for  nature  study  in  the 
schools. 

OUTSIDE    ST.\TIONS. 

Appendices  A,  B,  and  C  are  the  separate  reports  of  the  observatories  at 
the  chief  stations  at  Quebec,  St.  John,  N.B.,  and  Victoria.  Others  of  the  more 
important  stations  where  there  is  certain  special  work  performed  bej'ond  the 
daily  duty  of  observing,  are  as  follows: — 

1.  Vancouver. — At  this  station  the  observer,  Mr.  T.  S.  H.  Shearmen,  has 
an  office  in  the  public  building,  where  he  rates  chronometers  for  shipmasters, 
fires  the  gun  by  means  of  an  electrical  contact  and  supervises  the  manifolding 
and  distribution  of  weather  bulletins. 

2.  Banff. — In  addition  to  the  observing  station  in  the  village,  observer 
Sanson  has  charge  of  the  observatory  on  Sulphur  mountain  and  deserves  much 
credit  for  his  unremitting  energy  in  visiting  the  upper  station. 

3.  Edmonton. — The  chief  observer  and  assistant  observer  are  still  away 
on  military  service,  and  the  work  is  being  performed  by  IMrs.  Owen,  who,  however, 
does  little  beyond  the  mere  observing.  The  full  duties  of  this  provincial  chief 
station  are  in  abeyance  until  after  the  war. 

4.  Moosejaw. — The  chief  station  in  Saskatchewan  is  in  regular  working 
order  and  within  the  past  year  the  observer  has  occupied  a  suite  of  rooms  in  the 
new  Dominion  building. 

5.  Port  Arthur. — Observer  Cooke  now  occupies  a  room  in  the  new  public 
building  where  he  answers  inquiries  regarding  the  weather  and  climate. 

tj.  Montreal. — At  this  observatory  Prof.  C.  H.  ^IcLeod,  in  addition  to

Sir, — I  have  the  honour  to  transmit  mv  annual  report  for  the  vear 
1915-16. 

In  addition  to  the  usual  meteorological  observations  which  were  recorded 
without  interruption,  special  reports  were  furnished  daily  to  the  public  through 
the  newspapers  and  otherwise,  and  the  number  of  inquiries  at  this  observatory 
has  increased  considerably. 


METEOROLOGICAL  REPORT  149 

SESSIONAL  PAPER   No.  21 

Statements  and  extracts  from  the  records  of  the  observatory  were  prepared 
for  engineers  and  other  persons  interested  in  industrial  corporations,  also  for 
the  court  in  many  cases. 

The  weather  bulletin  published  by  the  Meteorological  Service  at  Toronto 
has  been  posted  regularly  at  the  pul^lic  buildings,  and  inquiries  by  farmers  and 
tourists  respecting  the  weather  conditions  and  probabilities  were  very  numerous 
especially  duiing  the  summer  months. 

Several  barometers  and  thermometers  were  compared  with  our  standards, 
and  readings  of  the  meteorological  instruments  were  furnished  daily  to  several  of 
the  militia  quarters  and  forts  in  Quebec  and  surroundings. 

The  correct  time  was  given  to  the  shipping  by  means  of  the  time-ball 
during  the  navigation  season,  and  by  telephone  to  the  watchmakers  and  to  a 
very  large  number  of  people  in  and  outside  the  city,  the  noon  gun  having  been 
discontinued  since  the  beginning  of  the  war. 

Owing  to  the  ever  increasing  number  of  inquiries  concerning  the  time,  I 
take  the  liberty  of  suggesting  that  some  means  of  distribution  throughout  the 
city  be  organized  as  exist  elsewhere  in  centres  of  some  importance. 

The  whole  respectfully  submitted.  ,

Director,  Meteorological  Service, 
Toronto,  Ont. 

Sir, — I  have  the  honour  to  present  the  following  report  of  this  Observatory 
for  the  fiscal  j'ear  ending  31st  March,  1916. 

METEOROLOGICAL    SERVICE. 

The  tri-daily  observations  have  been  continued  without  interruption  at 
9  a.m.,  3  p.m.,  and  9  p.m.,  Atlantic  standard  time.  The  first-  and  last-mentioned 
are  immediately  telegraphed  to  the  central  office  for  use  on  the  synoptic  chart. 
An  additional  reading  is  made  at  noon  to  accompany  the  daily  report  furnished 
the  evening  newspapers.  In  addition  to  eye-readings  of  the  various  instruments, 
hourly  tabulations  and  monthly  abstracts  are  made  from  the  automatic  records 
of  the  barometric  pressure,  temperature,  rainfall,  humidity  and  direction  and 
velocity  of  the  wind.  Anemograph  records  from  the  Point  Lepreau  wind  station 
sent  here  weekly  are  tabulated  for  every  hour  and  a  monthly  analysis  made. 
The  data  from  this  station  give  most  useful  information  of  outside  conditions 
in  the  bay  of  Fundy.  During  periods  of  abnormal,  extreme,  or  stormy  weather 
the  press  is  furnished  with  any  special  information  which  may  be  of  value  or 
interest  to  their  readers.  Solar  and  terrestrial  radiation  thermometers  have  been 
installed  since  my  previous  report  and  daily  observations  from  these  instruments 
are  taken. 

The  morning  weather  bulletin  is  now  printed  at  the  observatory  on  a  rotary 
duplicating  machine  which  ensures  a  more  prompt  issue  after  receipt  of  the  tele- 
graphic message  from  Toronto,  which  is  immediately  telephoned  from  the 
Western  Union  to  the  observatory  office.    The  bulletin  is  distributed  through  the 


150  MARINE  AXD  FISHERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

mail,  posted  in  pulilic  places  and  published  by  every  evening  newspaper.  The 
synopsis,  giving  movement  of  important  changes  throughout  the  continent,  as 
well  as  prevailing  weather  conditions  at  the  diiterent  adjacent  stations,  together 
with  the  forecasts  for  following  days  is  of  utmost  importance  to  mariners, 
shippers  of  perishable  goods  and  various  other  commercial  and  personal  interests. 

On  receipt  of  the  warning  from  Toronto,  storm  signals  are  displaj-ed  from  the 
signal  mast  on  Customs  building  here  and  the  warning  repeated  by  telephone 
to  the  storm  warning  agents  at  Quaco  lighthouse  and  Point  Lepreau. 

On  the  morning  opening  of  the  telephone  offices  throughout  this  province 
the  New  Brunswick  Telephone  Company  send  your  forecasts  and  have  them 
displaj'ed  on  forms  supplied  by  the  Meteorological  Service.  This  most  expansive 
distribution  is  made  gratuitously  and  the  courtesy  greatly  appreciaied  by 
residents  of  the  various  localities.  The  forenoon  forecast  as  heretofore  is  tele- 
phoned the  exchange  at  St.  Martins. 

The  monthly  returns  received  from  all  stations  in  the  IMaritime  Provinces 
are  checked  and  where  necessary  sums  and  mean  values  computed.  After 
abstracting  the  required  statistical  and  climatological  records  the  returns  are 
forwarded  to  the  central  office  at  Toronto.  This  has  largely  increased  the  data 
which  v,'e  are  frequently  asked  to  promptly  furnish  shippers,  commercial  houses, 
transportation  companies,  contractors  and  others,  l)oth  locally  and  from  the 
adjacent  provinces.  It  has  also  caused  a  considerable  increase  in  our  clerical 
work. 

TIME    SERVICE. 

Observations  for  time  with  the  transit  telescope  have  been  made  as  often 
as  practicable  to  determine  the  errors  and  rates  of  the  standard  sidereal  clocks. 
The  Riefler  sidereal  which  is  used  as  the  primary  standard  has  given  most 
satisfactory  results.  This  clock,  as  in  the  past,  has  been  run  under  constant 
temperature  and  pressure.  So  favorable  are  the  conditions  in  the  new  clock- 
room  that  the  pressure  inside  the  case  has  not  been  observed  to  vary  more  than 
two  millimeters  during  the  past  twelve  months.  The  KuUberg  sidereal  has  been 
used  as  the  observing  clock,  comparisions  being  made  on  the  chronograph  about 
the  middle  of  the  group  of  stars  observed.  Comparison  of  the  mean  time  trans- 
mitting clock  is  also  made  on  the  chronograph  and  any  small  outstanding  error 
corrected  by  the  apparatus  formerly  described. 

The  daily  time  signal  has  been  regularly  transmitted  by  telegraph  to  nearly 
all  parts  of  the  maritime  provinces  and  is  the  standard  of  time  for  this  section 
of  the  Dominion.  As  heretofore  special  signals  are  frequently  transmitted, 
both  by  telegraph  and  telephone  to  mariners,  chronometer  raters  and  others. 

The  time-balls  at  St.  John  and  Halifax  have  been  dropped  each  week  day 
at  1  p.m.,  standard  time  of  the  GOth  meridian.  The  outside  clocks  connected 
bj'  wire  with  the  observatory  have  been  hourh^  synchronized  throughout  the 
year.  The  various  electrical  appliances  connected  with  our  time  service  have 
been  maintained  in  good  condition  and  are  giving  the  best  possible  satisfaction. 
The  electric  clock  in  Halifax  is  daily  synchronized  by  our  standard  transmitting 
clock,  and  return  signals  from  Halifax  indicate  but  slight  error  in  the  daily 
rate  of  that  clock. 

The  principal  chronometer  and  watch  adjusters  in  Halifax  have  sounders 
on  their  premises  connected  by  wire  with  the  A\estern  Union  office  there  and 
receive  our  10  a.m.  time  signals  daily.  Some  installations  of  electric  clocks  in 
Halifax  use  this  signal  to  automatically  synchronize  their  master  clocks.  In 
St.  John  the  system  of  hourlj-  synchronizing  tower,  street  and  office  clocks, 
continues  to  give  most  satisfactory  and  useful  results.  A  special  wire  from  the 
ob.5ervatory  to  the  local  telephone  office  operates  the  various  clock  line  relays.

The  telephone  company  make  a  nominal  charge  for  this  wire  service  which  is 
well  taken  care  of. 

The  new  switch-board  has  been  fitted,  wired  and  connections  made  with 
main-line  wires,  chronograph,  clocks  and  time-desk,  replacing  the  temporary 
arrangements  consequent  upon  removal  to  the  new  observatory  building. 

During  the  past  season  permanent  walks  have  been  laid,  the  ground  seeded 
and  sodded,  and  the  front  wall  completed.  The  spacious  lawn  is  now  in  good 
condition  and  gives  a  most  desiraijie  exposure  for  the  outside  instruments.

Toronto,  Out. 

Sir, — I  have  the  honour  to  submit  the  following  report  upon  this  oliserva- 
tory  for  the  fiscal  year  ending  March  31,  1916.  During  the  past  year  the  regular 
tri-daily  meteorological  observations  have  been  taken  and  weather  forecasts 
derivecl  from  the  telegraphic  reports  received  from  the  western  portion  of  this 
continent,  have  been  issued  daily  except  on  Sundays  and  certain  hohdays,  both 
morning  and  evening.  These  are  published  in  the  daily  press  both  here  and  on 
the  lower  mainland,  and  each  morning  at  9  o'clock  over  thirty  special  bulletins 
are  posted  throughout  this  city  and' others  in  Vancouver. 

Storm  warnings  have  been  issued  throughout  the  year;  these  are  greatly 
appreciated  by  mariners  and  particularly  by  towing  companies  and  fishermen. 

Several  thousand  telephone  inquiries  have  been  .answered  respecting  the 
weather  during  the  stormy  months;  some  of  these  were  from  the  builders  of  the 
new  government  breakwater  and  ocean  docks. 

Apart  from  the  regular  weather  forecasts,  special  forecasts  were  furnished 
the  Provincial  Government  Forestry  Department  during  the  summer  months. 
These  have  proved  of  even  greater  value  to  that  department  this  year  than  last, 
in  the  matter  of  warning  the  approach  of  great  heat  or  hot  dry  winds  in  the  inte- 
rior of  the  province  when  forest  fires  are  likely  to  occur  and  liring  destruction 
if  not  checked  in  time.  This  branch  of  our  work  was  gratefully  acknowledged 
by  a  letter  of  thanks  received  at  the  close  of  the  season  from  the  above  depart- 
ment. 

The  weekly  and  monthly  weather  reports  derived  from  all  our  British  Colum- 
bia telegraph  stations  are  regularly  published  in  the  press  of  Vancouver  island 
and  the  lower  mainland  and  copies  are  mailed  to  certain  fruit  growers  in  the 
interior  of  the  province. 

The  seismological  instruments  mentioned  in  last  year's  report,  have  proved 
most  satisfactory,  and  during  this  year  108  earthquakes  have  been  recorded 
here,  while  in  many  cases  the  records  were  so  clear  that  the  distances  to  their 
points  of  origin  could  be  measured,  and  also  the  vertical  movement  these  earth- 
waves  caused  locally. 

The  daily  slow  movements  of  both  the  Eagt-West  and  North-South  hori- 
zontal pendulums  have  been  carefully  measured,  and  interesting  abnornuil 
results  have  been  obtained,  which  may  have  some  practical  bearing  upon  certain 
ofher  phenomena.     The  minute  oscillations  of  the  vertical  seismograph  called 


152  MARIXE  AXD  FI  If  SERIES 

7  GEORGE  V,  A.  1917 

"niicroseisms"  have  not  been  so  pronounced  this  year  as  during  hist.  These  do 
not  occur  when  gales  prevail  here  but  some  times  when  great  storms  are  reported 
on  the  west  coast  of  Vancouver  island. 

THE    TIME    SERVICE. 

Upon  the  24th  of  May,  1915,  the  time  ball  which  is  installed  upon  the  mast 
rising  above  the  roof  of  the  highest  city  building  near  the  harbour,  was  dropped 
for  the  first  time,  and  with  only  one  or  two  failures  due  to  faulty  electric 
connections,  this  service  has  been  continuous,  and  has  proved  of  great  value  not 
only  to  shipping  interests,  but  to  the  public,  and  for  regulating' clocks,  factory 
whistles,  ancl  the  military   noon-gun. 

The  time  for  this  service  is  obtained  from  star  observations  taken  nearly 
every  clear  evening  by  means  of  the  transit  telescope,  which  is  well  mounted  in 
a  special  room  upon  a  massive  concrete  pier  which  rises  from  the  solid  rock.  The 
adjustments  for  collimation  and  azimuth  have  been  carefully'  made  and  a  fine 
fixed  mark  for  checking  these  has  been  established  on  a  government  building 
at  a  distance  of  two  miles. 

The  level  variations  here  are  small  even  during  the  winter  months,  probably 
due  to  local  climatic  conditions. 

It  is  possible  by  means  of  these  observations  to  keep  the  time  accurate  to 
within  one  or  two-ieurhs  of  a  second. 

The  tiine-liall  which  is  a  distance  from  the  observatoiy,  atiout  two  miles, 
is  controlled  l)y  a  telegraph  key  here,  in  the  following  manner:  At  12.30  p.m. 
each  day  (including  Sundays)  the  C.P.R.  Telegraph  Co.  connects  our  line  with 
the  time-ball  circuit:  at  12.45  p.m.  a  signal  of  two  taps  given  from  here,  notifies 
the  man  in  charge  of  the  time-ball  to  hoist  it  to  half-mast  at  12.55  p.m.,  three 
taps  notifies  the  man  to  hoist  the  ball  to  top  and  to  set  the  electric  trigger.  At 
one-half  second  to  the  exact  1  p.m.,  I  press  the  key  here  and  the  ball  drops  on 
the  true  time.  This  operation  is  checked  daily  by  watching  the  ball  through  a 
telescope  here. 

I  am  pleased  to  state  that  all  the  mechanism  in  connection  with  the  time- 
ball  was  made  locally  under  my  supervision  and  has  proved  very  satisfactory,  and 
particularly  the  electric  trigger,  and  automatic  brake  which  stops  the  descent 
of  the  ball  at  the  base  of  the  mast.  ^ 

The  true  time  is  also  furnished  to  the  Naval  authorities  when  required. 

Owing  to  the  war,  visitors  are  not  admitted  here,  but  a  hearty  welcome  has 
alwa^'s  been  accorded  all  our  soldiers  and  their  friends,  and  over  400  have  visited 
this  institution. 

During  the  past  winter  I  have  given  a  course  of  six  illustrated  lectures, 
some  bearing  upon  the  work  of  this  institution  and  under  the  auspices  of  tlie 
Royal  Astronomical  Society.  |t-*'*''»'<^ 

In  conclusion,  I  would  respectfully  urge  that,  in  order  to  make  this  institu- 
tion more  efficient,  a  good  Sidereal  clock  and  chronograph  be  added  to  our  time 
service,  and  that  the  delicate  seismographs  ordered  in  Europe  before  the  war 
be  constructed  here  under  my  supervision.

R.  F.  Stupart,  Esq.,  F.R.S.C, 

Director  of  the  Meteorological  Service, 
Toronto,  Out. 

Sir, — I  beg  to  furnish,  herewith,  a  report  on  the  work  of  the  agricultural 
section  for  the  fiscal  year  1915-16. 

In  October,  191.5,  my  report  to  you  (published  in  the  Annual  Report  of  the 
Department  of  Marine  for  1914-15,  pages  353-6)  showed  that  pi'eliminary  studies 
in  1914  crystallized  into  definite  field  experimentation.  It  appears  that  in  this, 
supplemented  by  laboratory  investigations  under  controlled  conditions,  lies  the 
promise  of  solving  the  great  problems  of  agricultural  meteorology. 

Forms  on  which  to  record  detailed  crop  notes  for  spring  wheat  were  mailed 
to  14  Dominion  experimental  stations  early  in  1915.  A  copy  of  this  form  is 
enclosed. 

Commencing  with  March,  1915,  charts  were  prepared,  representing  on  one 
sheet  of  squared  paper  the  daily  maximum,  minimum  and  mean  temperatures, 
the  24-hour  precipitation  and  the  total  number  of  hours  of  bright  sunshine. 
These  charts  make  the  weather  figures  "speak":  they  show  almost  at  a  glance 
the  meteorological  conditions  at  each  station  for  the  whole  crop  season;  and 
they  remove  in  a  large  degree  the  complexity  of  lengthy  weather  records. 

The  14  stations  were  visited  in  July  and  August,  1915. 

After  harvest  of  the  wheat,  the  forms  were  returned  to  the  agricultural 
section  and  the  crop  and  weather  data  were  correlated.-  The  average  height  of 
the  wheat  every  seven  days  was  shown  on  the  charts,  and  also  periods  of  develop- 
ment were  shown,  liounded  by  such  plant  activities  as  appearance  above  ground, 
stooling,  heading,  lilossoming,  milk  stage  and  maturity. 

In  concise  tables  the  crop  notes  were  presented  in  such  a  form  that  the  facts 
from  the  different  stations  could  be  easily  compared.  Also  an  analysis  of  the 
weather  was  made  in  tables  for  the  periods  of  development,  no  particular  emphasis 
being  placed  on  the  calendar  date  but  rather  on  the  stage  of  plant  development; 
the  meteorological  conditions  at  the  fourteen  stations  were  thus  readily  com- 
pared on  one  double  page.  From  the  charts  and  tables  notes  were  prepared 
on  the  "wheat  and  weather"  for  the  entire  season  at  each  station.  And  it 
should  l)e  feasible  to  publish  through  some  suitable  medium  enough  of  the  results 
and  methods  to  be  of  interest  to  agriculturists  and  to  reveal  the  advance  of  the 
work. 

The  use  of  all  these  analytical  nrethods  was  made  possible  by  adapting  them 
from  translations  of  Russian  publications,  which  have  been  setting  forth  the 
results  of  field  experimentation  in  agricultural  meteorology  in  Russia  for  the  past 
fifteen  years  or  more. 

By  a  co-operative  agreement  with  the  office  of  experiment  stations  of  the 
United  States,  the  translation  of  manj^  of  the  most  valuable  Russian  publica- 
tions has  proceeded  simultaneously  at  Washington  and  at  Toronto.  Copies  of 
all  translations  are  exchanged.  Also,  Dr.  T.  K.  Doherty,  Canadian  Commissioner 
of  the  International  Institute  of  Agriculture,  has  translated  from  the  French 
several  articles  by  Prof.  P.  Broounoff,  Chief  of  the  Russian  Bureau  of  Agri- 
cultural Meteorology.  Through  the  kindness  of  Dr.  Doherty  these  articles, 
together  with  the  best  of  those  in  Russian,  will  likely  become  available  to 
Canadians  in  the  Bulletin  of  Foreign  Agricultural  Intelligence  published  by  the 
Dominion  Department  of  Agriculture.  And  these  translated  articles  should  serve 
to  educate  and  to  awaken  public  interest.

The  reference  library  of  this  section  has  grown  steadily.  Every  effort  is 
made  to  keep  in  touch  with  what  other  workers  are  doing,  and  the  current 
publications  in  agricultural  meteorology  arc  recorded  on  a  classified  card  index. 
This  index  has  become  a  bibliography  of  recent  progress  in  plant  physiology, 
ecology,  investigation  of  plant  diseases  and  of  soils,  etc.,  and  has  been  of  service 
in  giving  to  inquirers  a  list  of  the  literature  of  that  phase  of  agricultural 
meteorology  in  tvhich  they  may  be  interested. 

Inquiries  by  letter  are  increasing  in  frecjuency  and  correspondence  is 
.steadily  growing.  One  branch  of  the  latter  is  the  writing  of  occasional  letters 
to  co-workers  in  science  and  especially  to  experimenting  botanists  with  a  view 
to  co-operating  in  laboratory  investigations  on  important  farm  plants. 

It  is  proposed  in  1916  to  continue  the  experimental  work  of  1915.  Observer's 
forms  and  instructions  have  been  forwarded  to  the  same  stations  through 
Dr.  Shutt,  Assistant  Director  of  the  Dominion  Experimental  Farms'  system. 
Acknowledgment  is  due  to  Dr.  ,Shutt  and  to  Dr.  C.  E.  Saunders,  Dominion 
Cerealist,  for  their  courteous  assistance  in  the  development  of  the  field  experi- 
ments. -  The  writer  is  to  spend  the  whole  growing  season  of  1916  at  the  Central 
Experimental  Farm  at  Ottawa,  in  order  to  be  in  closest  contact  with  the  agri- 
culture and  biology  of  the  subject. 

At  the  proper  time  in  the  future  it  is  hoped  to  present  a  plan  for  increasing 
the  equipment  of  instruments  and  perfecting  the  experimental  methods  until 
approach  is  made  to  the  remarkable  organization  of  Russia  in  agricultural 
meteorology.

ANNUAL   REPORT   OF   THE  MEDICAL  SUPERINTENDENT  OF  THE 
MARINE  HOSPITAL  SERVICE  FOR  THE  FISCAL  YEAR  1915-16. 

SICK  AND  DISTRESSED  MARINERS. 

Under  the  provisions  of  the  Canada  Shipping  Act,  chapter  113,  part,  5,  s. 
338,  R.S.,  dues  of  1|  cent  per  ton,  registered  tonnage,  are  levied  on  every  vessel 
entering  any  port  of  the  province  of  Quebec,  Nova  Scotia,  New  Brunswick, 
Prince  Edward  Island,  and  British  Columbia.  The  money  thus  collected  forms 
the  sick  mariners'  fund.  Vessels  of  the  burden  of  100  tons  and  less,  pay  duty 
once  in  each  calendar  year,  and  vessels  of  more  than  100  tons,  registered  tonnage, 
three  times  in  each  year. 

Tlie  officers  and  seamen  of  all  fishing  vessels  not  registered  in  Canada  do  not 
pay  sick  mariners'  dues  nor  participate  in  the  benefits  accruing  therefrom;  but 
such  vessels  registered  in  Canada  may  pay  dues  and  participate  in  the  benefits; 
and  if  of  more  than  100  tons,  onlj'  for  the  voyage  at  the  beginning  of  which  pay- 
ment has  been  made;  such  vessels  shall  enjoy  the  same  rights  and  benefits  as  are 
enjoyed  by  vessels  which  pay  dues  and  are  not  engaged  in  fishing. 

The  Act,  chapter  113,  Canadian  Shipping,  does  not  apply  to  the  province  of 
Ontario,  so  no  dues  are  collected  from  vessels  in  that  province. 

PROVINCE    OF    QUEBEC. 

At  the  port  of  Quebec,  sick  mariners  are  cared  for  at  the  Jeffrey  Hale  and 
Hotel  Dieu  hospitals,  at  a  per  diem  allowance  of  .|1.50  for  each  seaman,  including

SABLE   ISLAND 

Sable  Island,  February  25,  1916. 

Agent,  Marine  and  Fisheries, 
Dartmouth,  N.S. 

Sir, — I  beg  to  sulmiit  to  you  my  annual  report  for  1915,  which  is  as  follows: — 
Boats  on  hand,  similar  to  last  season.  Stock:  horses  45,  horn  cattle  60,  hogs  4. 
People  on  Island  50,  including  5  at  the  wireless  station.  Numlrer  of  times  did 
rounds,  a.m.  79.  p.m.  50,  total  129. 

Repairs  to  buildings  at  main  station:  shingled  part  of  cow  barn  and  new 
doors  to  it;  shingled  part  of  wagon  house;  new  doors  to  horse  barn;  shingled 
and  thoroughly  repaired  boat-house  at  No.  3  station;  shingled  roof  and  other 
repairs  to  horse  barn. 

Crops,  potatoes,  almost  a  failure;  other  vegetables,  good  crops  aliout  the 
average;  ha.y  exceedingly  good,  well  above  average. 

Cattle  killed,  two  weighing  1,100  pounds;  pigs,  four  weighing  1,260  pounds. 

Wrecks  during  the  year,  two,  ss.  Silvcrwings,  of  London,  Eng.,  stranded 
August  17,  near  West  light,  and  became  a  total  wreck.  Her  cargo  consisted  of 
various  war  materials  of  which  little  or  nothing  was  saved.  She  has  since 
disappeared  from  view.  On  the  morning  of  September  10,  the  auxiliary  barque 
Lota  of  Norway  ran  ashore  on  the  detached  bar  off  east  end  of  the  island.  The 
fog  was  dense,  and  did  not  clear  .sufficiently  to  sight  her  by  the- patrolmen,  or 
from  the  stations,  until  the  evening  of  the  Uth,  when  a  boat  was  dispatched  as 
soon  as  possible.  At  noon  on  the  12th  the  crew  was  landed  at  No.  4  station. 
She,  too,  became  a  total  wreck.  Her  cargo  contained  7,000  or  8,000  barrels  of 
lubricating  oil,  of  which  the  greater  part  was  lost.  Some  2,000  barrels  landed 
along  the  shore  of  the  island,  and  we  have  hauled  them  up  at  various  places 
between  the  east  and  west  ends  of  the  island.  The  Lola  has  also  disappeared 
during  the  winter. 

The  crews  of  the  two  vessels,  Silverwings,  25,  and  Lota,  19,  44  in  all,  were 
safely  landed  and  cared  for  until  transported  to  Halifax  by  your  orders.
